Tommy Lee Jailed For Five Days On Parole Violation

Details of violation unavailable, but rocker had been under investigation for drinking alcohol.

Rocker Tommy Lee, the former Mötley Crüe drummer who now leads rock-rap outfit Methods of Mayhem, was jailed for five days Friday on a parole violation, Reuters reported.

Because the court session was held privately in the chambers of Los Angeles Superior Court judge Lawrence Mira, details of the violation were not available, according to the news service. But Lee had recently been under investigation by the Malibu, Calif., district attorney's office for allegations of drinking alcohol.

He was forbidden from drinking as part of his 1998 conviction on a felony spousal-abuse charge for assaulting his then-wife, actress Pamela Anderson.

In addition to the jail time, Mira ordered Lee into an Alcoholics Anonymous program, said that he must resume random drug tests and stretched his probation — of which he still had one year to complete — through May 26, 2003, Reuters reported.

Lee served four months of a six-month sentence in Los Angeles County Jail after pleading no contest to the spousal-abuse charges in May 1998.

The rocker has yet to complete the 450 hours of community service included in his sentence, district attorney spokesperson Sandi Gibbons said recently.
