Nicole Richie's Probation Extended One Year
A Los Angeles judge extended Nicole Richie's probation by a year Tuesday.
Richie, 28, is still on probation from her 2006 DUI, in which she was arrested after driving the wrong way on an L.A. freeway. The reality star later admitted to smoking marijuana and taking Vicodin before climbing behind the wheel, and spent 82 minutes in jail. (She was also arrested in 2003 and charged with heroin possession and driving with a suspended license.)

Her lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, explained to the judge Tuesday that Richie had a court-approved leave of absence from her alcohol education classes, a condition of her probation, while she raised her kids, Harlow, 2, and Sparrow, 9 months.
