Hollywood Money Man Kavanaugh Faces Jail For Second Dui

Movie producer RYAN KAVANAUGH is facing jail this week, after he was arrested in October (08) for driving under the influence of alcohol, speeding and driving with a suspended licence, all while still on probation for an earlier DUI charge.
The 34-year-old financier, whose Hollywood credits include Charlie Wilson's War, 3:10 to Yuma, 21 and the forthcoming musical Nine, was reportedly stopped by cops as he drove home from a film premiere in Los Angeles on 23 October (08).
It comes just two years after he was arrested for driving drunk in Malibu, California.
News of his arrest emerged on Friday (05Dec08), as it was revealed he will be arraigned at a Beverly Hills court on Friday 12 December (08).
A jail term could be handed out for both the second DUI charge and for violation of the probation he was placed on in 2006.
Kavanaugh's Relativity Pictures has big money deals with almost every major movie studio, including a $550 million (GBP366 million) partnership with Sony Pictures and a recently-signed $3 billion (GBP2 billion) contract with NBC Universal.
But Hollywood bosses are standing by Kavanaugh. Sony spokesperson Jim Kennedy tells the New York Times, "We do not anticipate that this will have any impact on our current business."
