The decision to sentence soul legend Diana Ross to two days in prison following her conviction for drink driving in Arizona has been slammed by natives of the state.

According to HOLLY ROBLES of campaigning group PIMA COUNTY MOTHERS AGAINST DRUNK DRIVING, many locals from Tucson - where Ross was caught driving erratically - believe the sentence was too light.

Robles fumes, "The public perception is that Diana Ross got away with it."

The former SUPREMES singer, 59, was twice over the legal alcohol limit when she was arrested in December (03). She must serve two days in prison, near her Los Angeles home, before 9 March (04).

Protestors are trying to organise demonstrations outside City Hall and also plan to publically chastise their mayor following Monday's (9FEB04) decision.
