Culture Shock For Gisela Zetsche

Dieter Zetche's wife, Gisela, is in legal trouble in Bloomfield Township, MI. She hosted some parties where teenagers were served beer, like in Germany. The police found out, and she has a court date on September 13th, charged with a misdemeanor for hosting an open house party, punishable by a $500 fine or 90 days in jail. The punishment is a relative slap on the wrist, and she may even get out of it with some kind of community service agreement. Maybe a public service announcement.

The description of the bust reads rather comically (to me). I imagine drunk suburban rich kids diving for the bushes while the cops are pounding on the front door.

At the latest party in June, attended by 100 youths, Gisela Zetsche was present but her husband was not, witnesses said. Police responding to a complaint charged her with allowing minors to drink alcohol.


At 11:56 p.m., a neighbor called the township police to complain about the noise and that minors were drinking and tossing things at passing cars. Two officers arrived at 12:37 a.m., later saying they could smell the alcohol from the roadway 50 yards away.

"The cops are coming," a youth yelled when the two officers walked into the back yard. Most of the teens ran into the house, up the stairs and out the front door. They left behind a dozen cars, including a 2005 Saab, 2004 BMW and 2005 Volkswagen Jetta.

The officers stopped 30 kids and found 10 others hiding in closets throughout the 5,100-square-foot home. Two others were caught trying to drive away.

The police administered Breathalyzer tests to the 42 youths, and half were found to be drinking. The 14 boys and seven girls were charged with minor in possession of alcohol, a misdemeanor punishable by up to a $500 fine and 90 days in jail.
