THAT’S WHAT YOU GET FOR DISSING ANGIE! Â» Grammy award-winning R&B singer Dâ€™Angelo was fined and received suspended jail sentences Friday on charges stemming from a 2005 single-vehicle accident. The Richmond native, born Michael E. Archer, pleaded guilty to driving with a suspended license and driving under the influence in Powhatan General District Court. Judge Paul Cella fined him $1,000, with $500 suspended, sentenced him to nine days in jail, all suspended, and revoked his license for 90 days on the suspended license charge. Cella also fined him $1,500, with $750 suspended, sentenced him to six months in jail, also suspended, and suspended his license for 12 months on the DUI charge. A reckless driving charge was dropped.
Assistant Commonwealthâ€™s Attorney Richard Cox said the countyâ€™s case was weakened when the star witness in the case, who was riding with Archer, did not show up in court Friday. The performer was driving a Hummer in Powhatan County when he was thrown from the vehicle. He suffered bruised ribs and contusions, according to state police. Following a string of hits in the â€™90s, Archer began a series of run-ins with the law. In April 2005, he was fined $250 and given a 90-day suspended jail term on a DUI conviction. Archerâ€™s driverâ€™s license was suspended for one year. Just a week before the accident, Archer had been given a three-year suspended sentence in Chesterfield Circuit Court on a cocaine charge stemming from a traffic stop. [ NY DAILY NEWS ]

JERMAINE DUPRI “AUTOBIOGRAPHY” COMING SOON! Â» Jermaine Dupri is reportedly releasing an “Autobiography” pretty soon. Now, the reason I put “Autobiography” in quotes is because I highly doubt that homeboy wrote it himself. Most of the time, they, and when I say “they” I mean non-authors, hire people to write for them. They basically tell them their story, and the writer writes everything. Nothing wrong with that, but is it still considered an “Autobiography?” I don’t think so… seeing as the definition of an “Autobiography” is the story of a person’s life written by that person. Anyhow, peep “Young, Rich, and Dangerous” when it’s released October 16th!
