Britto Gets off with No Jail Time for DUI

This past March, artist Romero Britto, whose work seems to be pervasive in South Florida, got popped for driving his 2001 Bentley drunk down Washington Avenue in South Beach. 

He entered a plea deal today, according to NBC Miami, and won't serve any jail time. Instead, he will be without a driver's license for six months, must perform 100 hours of community service, and is required to pay a $1,000 fine. 

Personally, we think a more fitting punishment would be to make him drive around in one of these Britto-ized Audis so he's easily identifiable while on the road.
