Love admonished by judge



Rock star Courtney Love showed up two hours late Tuesday for a hearing on drug charges in Beverly Hills, Calif., and was scolded by the judge after talking out of turn in court.

Love's attorney Michael Rosenstein won a delay of the preliminary hearing after arguing that witnesses needed to be brought in from out of state and that he had not received drug samples for testing.

But the brief proceeding was marked by interjections from Love, who claimed to have prescriptions for the drugs.

Love, former lead singer of the group Hole, is charged with illegal possession of painkillers.
