Diana Ross served her sentence for an Arizona drunk driving conviction in upscale Greenwich, where she lives, a newspaper reported.

“That obligation was fulfilled here,” Police Chief James Walters told the Greenwich Time for Friday’s editions. “That’s about all I can add.”

Ross served her time at the Greenwich Police Department, the paper said, but details about when and for how long she stayed at the department were not available. It also wasn’t known specifically how she was housed.

The R&B diva was convicted Monday of driving under the influence and ordered to spend two days in jail. She telephoned into a Tucson, Ariz., court hearing from New York, pleading no contest to DUI. Two related charges were dropped.

The former lead singer for the Supremes was arrested Dec. 30, 2002, after a driver called to report a car traveling south in the northbound lanes outside Tucson.

Tests showed Ross had a blood-alcohol level of 0.20 percent. Arizona’s legal limit for drivers is 0.08.
