Bobby Rydell sentenced over DUI crash

Pop crooner Bobby Rydell was accepted into a program for nonviolent first-time offenders today in Montgomery County Court over his Aug. 17 car crash in Narberth.

Rydell, 67, who the police report says admitted having a “double vodka” that day, will spend one year on probation, lose his driver’s license for two months, pay $1,800 in court courts, and perform 24 hours of community service.

He smacked his Bentley into a storefront of a yoga studio. He had told police that he thought he had been turning into the driveway of the Acme market a block away. His wife, Linda, told me last August that he was on his way to pick up potato salad when he pulled into the driveway to elude a tailgater.
