Four days just ain't what it used to be. Nicole Richie checked in to the Lynwood, CA jail Thursday at 3:15 p.m.and -- due to jail overcrowding -- was released 82 minutes later, at 4:37p.m., according to People.com. By the expectant mom's side were her baby's daddy, Joel Madden and her lawyer. Nicole's booking stats?
5'1" and 105lbs. At five months pregnant.
"Miss Richie was cooperative during the process," the sheriff's department said in a statement. The statement also claimed that Nicole's time served was "based on her sentence and federal court guidelines." Apparently, under the current sheriff's policy, non-violent female offenders sentenced to 30 days or less are booked and released within 12 hours. As part of the sentence for her DUI charge, Nicole also agreed to serve a three-year probation term, must enroll in an alcohol education program and was fined $2,048.
I know my should mouth should be gaping that Nicole spent less than an hour-and-a-half in jail, but I'm more shocked about her weight. She's cracked the triple digits! Her booking photo is probably the best picture she's ever taken. Wonders never cease.
