Richie Sambora ducks child endangerment charges

April 22nd, 2008 // 12 Comments

Richie Sambora was formally charged today with “two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence of alcohol and driving with a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit.” Prosecutors, however, did not charge Richie with child endangerment despite a recommendation from the arresting officers. He had two minors in the car and one one was his 10-year-old daughter. The AP reports:

The 48-year-old Sambora was pulled over by police in Laguna Beach on March 25 after his vehicle was allegedly swerving and straddling two lanes. The district attorney’s office says his blood-alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit in California.

Okay, some people (i.e. Bon Jovi fans) complained that Richie just had a few drinks at dinner and drove home with his kids. It happens all the time. But, looky here, the dude blew twice the legal limit! So basically Richie downed a fifth of Jim Beam, and I imagine the following took place: “Yum yum. Shit, we should get some nachos. I’ll drive! No, whoa, wait. Wait a minute. Hold on. We’re forgetting something. Aw, right, the kids! Phew, man, I almost left them here. Talk about shitty parenting. Nice save, Richie.” *HORF* “Ha! I just puked in my boots. Family time rocks. Alright, everyone buckled in?”

    This is very good news but I feel he should have been hit with child endangerment, regardless of who he is and the good music he’s made over the years with Bon Jovi.

    If Richie continues Living on a Prayer, he’ll run out eventually and that’s when things will really get rough.

    Hope you kick the bottle habit and hit the guitar instead Richie. Keep rockin’
