Judge Warns Tommy Lee on Alcohol

March 8, 1999

MALIBU, Calif. (AP) _ There is no evidence that Tommy Lee violated probation by drinking alcohol, a judge said Monday as he gave the Motley Crue drummer a stern warning.

Municipal Judge Lawrence Mira warned another mistake could send Lee to prison for three years. The judge said he could find no evidence to substantiate allegations that Lee drank alcohol at a Miami club with his bandmates, as reported by the New York Post.

Mira stressed that Lee was not to even enter a place where alcohol is sold during his three-year probation.

``I understand that,″ Lee said.

``That’s probably going to hamper your social life,″ the judge said, ``but it’s a lot better than what would come from a prison commitment.″

Lee pleaded no contest last April to kicking estranged wife Pamela Anderson Lee several times during a fight while she held their toddler son, Dylan.

In addition to requiring Lee to stay away from alcohol and drugs, the judge ordered him to stay at least 100 yards away from his estranged wife, attend anger management classes and undergo random drug tests.
