Associated Press is reporting that POISON guitarist C.C. Deville was sentenced to 80 days in jail after pleading no contest to driving while intoxicated.

Deville, 43, whose real name is Bruce Johannesson, was also ordered by a Superior Court commissioner to serve five years probation, pay a $1,000 fine and surrender his license for a year, city prosecutors said Monday.

Prosecutors say Deville hit a parked vehicle Aug. 24 while he was backing out of the driveway of his girlfriend's home. He allegedly rammed another parked car, deploying his vehicle's air bags and injuring his girlfriend.

Police later found him near his vehicle close to the scene of the second accident, prosecutors said.

He pleaded no contest last Friday to a charge of driving under the influence causing injury, authorities said.
