Stefano Tonchi Works Out DUI Charge; Anne Christensen to Edit T?

>> Stefano Tonchi, who officially starts as W editor on April 12, was scheduled to go on trial yesterday in Beverly Hills for a DUI, Gawker reports. Last January, Beverly Hills police stopped Tonchi for a "routine traffic violation"; when Tonchi refused a breathalyzer test at the scene, he was arrested when he failed a battery of field sobriety tests.

Police filed a single misdemeanor DUI charge against Tonchi last February, and he was arraigned last March, but trial was delayed for over a year while the defense filed several motions to suppress evidence. Tonchi's attorney confirmed to Gawker that a plea was worked out shortly before trial was to begin yesterday morning — the DUI charge was dropped and Tonchi was allowed to plead to only the initial traffic violation, failure to stop at a limit line. Tonchi himself did not appear in court.

Anne Christensen to edit T? »

As for building up his staff at W — Marie-Amelie Sauve's name has been thrown around, as have Anne Slowey, Cecilia Dean, and Armand Limnander. And Fashion Week Daily reports that T women's fashion director Anne Christensen may be in line for the top job at T; neither Christensen nor a T spokesperson responded to request for comment.
