(Newser) – Reality TV starlet Khloe Kardashian is free today after spending 173 minutes in a California jail for a parole violation, Us Weekly reports. For those keeping track, her stay was more than twice as long as Nicole Richie’s last year at the same detention facility.

Kardashian’s incarceration stemmed from a drunken-driving arrest last year, which then led to parole, which she violated by not signing up for a class. She must now enter into an alcohol-treatment program, but sister Kim says it's OK: "Khloe is the tough one." The reality series Keeping Up With the Kardashians is on E!.
