Eric Carmen sentenced to jail for DUI
The former Raspberries singer is heading to jail thanks to a September DUI in which he hit a fire hydrant in Orange, Ohio, reports TMZ.com.
Carmen, 59, will have to serve 30 days of his 180-day jail sentence and pay a $1,000 fine. At the time of his arrest, Carmen was so drunk, he handed his credit card to officers instead of his I.D., blew a whopping 0.23 on the breathalyzer (nearly three times the legal limit) and had a half-empty bottle of Grey Goose in his front seat. So you see, it's not just the cheap stuff that will get you hammered.
"Hungry Eyes" hit No. 4 in the U.S. and was featured in "Dirty Dancing." One song he penned, "All By Myself" has been featured ad nauseam in numerous TV shows and film.
