    From The Smoking Gun. I can't cut and paste from the copy of the court documents but they are all on the link below.

    ------

    Two days after landing on probation for walking out of the National Archives with classified documents, former national security adviser Sandy Berger was rung up in Virginia for reckless driving. While only a misdemeanor, the September 10 incident amounts to a probation violation that could land Berger in a federal lockup for three to nine months, according to "revocation guidelines" cited in the below memo. The document, sent to Magistrate Deborah Robinson, was drafted by the former Clinton administration figure's probation officer, Shawn Suber (the memo includes a lousy reproduction of Berger's mug shot). During a court appearance today, Robinson said that she would later decide whether to further sanction Berger, who was sentenced September 8 to two years probation, fined $50,000, and ordered to perform 100 hours of community service.

    Perhaps Robinson should have also seized his driver's license.

    I know how this would go if the Magistrate was Judge Cindy. I just don’t know how LONG he’d be in jail. ;)
