Tommy Lee Must Stay Sober

09/10/1998 AT 12:00 AM EDT

Rocker Tommy Lee has been given an ultimatum by Malibu Judge Lawrence Mira. "Commit to sobriety," the jurist told Lee, or else "you're going to come back to this court, and it'll be a very unhappy experience for you." The former drummer for Motley Crue served five days in the Los Angeles County Jail for drinking alcohol, which was in violation of his parole in a domestic violence case involving ex-wife Pamela Anderson. (In February 1998, Lee was charged with spousal abuse, child abuse and a firearms violation after he reportedly struck Anderson while she was holding one of their sons.) Judge Mira told Lee to return to court in September so his progress could be assessed.
