DaimlerChrysler CEO's Wife Nabbed for Hosting Party with Underage Drinking

Somehow, things are just different in the United States when it comes to teenage alcohol use.  The wife of Dieter Zetsche, the incoming CEO of DaimlerChrysler, entered a guilty plea for hosting a party at their home at which the police found 20 underage people with alcohol (all of whom were also ticketed).  Gisela Zetsche admitted buying alcohol for the nineteenth birthday party of a person living with the family for the summer, and the police found two kegs of beer, margarita mix, and empty liquor bottles when called to the house after complaints about things being thrown at passing vehicles.  She was fined $500 and ordered to pay $2,500 in court costs.  Not the best way to end your stay in America.  An AP story (here) discusses the prosecution.
