Nicole Richie Completes Probation Early

December 30, 2010 (4:14 am) GMT
Her probation was scheduled to end in February 2011, but she had completed all the terms of her probation when her lawyer appeared in court on Wednesday.

Newlywed has been given another reason to celebrate as she prepares to ring in 2011 - she'll start the New Year as a free woman. The socialite/actress' probation for a 2006 DUI charge was terminated on Wednesday, December 29, two months before it was scheduled to end.

Richie, who wed rocker Joel Madden earlier this month, was arrested after police spotted her driving the wrong way on an Los Angeles freeway. Her probation was scheduled to end in February, but her lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley went to court on Wednesday morning to present a judge with proof Nicole had completed all the terms of her probation, according to TMZ.com.

The judge agreed to terminate it early.
