Nicole Richie was released from jail Thursday after serving 82 minutes of a four-day sentence for driving under the influence of drugs.
The reality show star, who checked into a women's jail at 3:15 p.m., was released at 4:37 p.m. "based on her sentence and federal guidelines," Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Maribel Rizo said without elaborating.
Under a federal court mandate to manage jail overcrowding, arrestees sentenced to 30 days or less for a nonviolent offense are usually released within 12 hours, the sheriff's department said in a statement.
Under the guidelines, Richie was "treated in the same manner as other inmates with a similar sentence," the statement said.
Richie, 25, was originally sentenced to 96 hours in jail, but that was reduced to 90 hours because of time served when she was arrested.
Richie arrived at jail with her attorney Shawn Chapman Holley and her boyfriend, Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden. Her time at the Century Regional Detention Facility was4 AnswersCelebrities1 decade ago
Think about it. Almost every state has up to 16 major bridges. and many of those span over large and dangerous rivers. If the tragedy in Minneapolis is just over the Mississippi River imagine the Golden Gate Bridge! If it were ever to collapse there would countless deaths and many bodies would probably never be found. Should we push our government to have all the bridges in the United States revaluated?3 AnswersSafety1 decade ago
As stated by the U.S. Department of Transportation's inspector general last year criticized the Federal Highway Administration's oversight of interstate bridges, saying investigators found incorrect or outdated maximum weight limit calculations and weight limit postings in the National Bridge Inventory and in states' bridge databases.
Incorrect load ratings could endanger bridges by allowing heavier vehicles to cross than should be allowed, the inspector general said. The audit didn't identify any Minnesota bridges beyond noting that 3 percent of the state's bridges were structurally deficient, placing it at the low end among states.10 AnswersSafety1 decade ago
Feeling left out. I feel left out when my gf has her friend over at her house. What can I do? I need help?
Okay this is the deal, my gf has a friend that is her only one. And well we have a long distance relationship so I'm not there with her. Well when her friend comes over she usually tries to hog all the attention from her. She acts stupid and childish and it pisses me off cause my gf seems like a different person. She cant stand that my gf wants to pay attention to me so she says and does things to make her feel bad, which makes me even more piss.
Tonight she made a comment on how she was losing weight and my gf felt bad cause she has been exercising and eating right and she has gained weight. I dont want to upset my gf and tell her to get rid of her friend. Because I wont. But what the hell do you do when someone is intruding and almost making it seem like they dont want you around or to see their friend (meaning my gf) happy? Please can someone tell me what to do becuase if something doesnt happen I am going to lose my mind and do or say something that I know I will regret.

My girlfriend is a nervous wreck right now. Last night when we were on the phone her brother was sleeping in his livingroom because his mo let his gf move in. Well I heard a noise and her say ow, he had come into the den where she was with her friend and grabbed her hard. I heard every word he said to her and then her sobbing in pain.
Well tonight we are on the phone and he comes into her room accusing her of stealing his gf's money. My girlfriend would never do that and it was rude and mean the way he had come into her room. I told her she needs to talk to her mother about the problem, he is 18 and needs to grow up and be on his own with his gf. But she said her mom would just take his side. Mom's out there what should she do? Please someone help.4 AnswersFamily1 decade ago
To see you for who really are and not just as a screw up that they see you as? In my life I have made several mistakes that I am not proud of and my parents hound me on them day in and day out. I try to do what I can to make them see me as a good person. I always got A's and B's in school. and Then when I was 21 we got into a fight about me being in college. My dad kicked my out because I didn't want to go to college, I didn't feel ready. So I moved to Canada for 3 months to try and get on my own. Things didnt work out there and I came home having to file a bankrupcy. Well things have gone good until I was fired from a great job. Well now my parents see me as a failure, I want them to see me as something different. Can anyone give me a suggestion.8 AnswersFamily1 decade ago
