ROCK SINGER SENTENCED FOR POINTING GUN AT OFFICER

SHARE ROCK SINGER SENTENCED FOR POINTING GUN AT OFFICER

Rock singer Grace Slick received a six-month suspended sentence and was ordered to complete a substance abuse program, do 200 hours of community service and submit to random drug testing for leveling a gun at police at her Tiburon, Calif., home on March 5.

In her trademark deep, smoky voice, the former lead singer of the Jefferson Airplane apologized Monday before Marin County Superior Court Judge William Stephens and a roomful of media."I'd like to say how sorry I am to all the people involved that this incident happened," said Slick, 54, who seemed ill at ease amid the unfamiliar audience.

"She has experienced enormous remorse that this occurred," said her attorney, Charles Breyer.

Breyer has said Slick's actions were a result of stress caused by the loss of her Mill Valley home, which burned when county welders accidentally ignited grassland near her house last summer.
