Diana Ross Convicted Of Dui

Soul veteran DIANA ROSS has been convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) and ordered to spend two days in jail.

The CHAIN REACTION singer, who telephoned into Tucson, Arizona's city court hearing from New York today (09FEB04), pleaded no contest to DUI. Two related charges were dropped.

Tucson Magistrate T JAY CRANSHAW found Ross guilty and sentenced her to serve 48 hours in jail before 9 March (04). She was also sentenced to a year of unsupervised probation.

Ross, 59, was originally charged with driving under the influence, driving with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 per cent or more and extreme DUI with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.15 per cent or more.

Tucson police arrested her on 30 December, 2002, after a driver called to report a car travelling southbound in the northbound lanes just outside the city's north-east limits.

Breath test results showed Ross had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.20 per cent. Arizona's legal limit is 0.08.
