NICOLE RICHIE GOES TO JAIL -- AND QUICKLY LEAVES!

Nicole Richie has served her time! She was checked into a Los Angeles County jail Thursday afternoon at 3:15 and released at 4:37 -- just 82 minutes later!

Richie's time served was "based on her sentence, and the federal court guidelines," according to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Maribel Rizo.

"Miss Richie was accompanied by her attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley and her boyfriend, Joel Madden. She was booked and processed into the jail system. Miss Richie's demeanor was cooperative during the process," the rep said.

The pregnant star spent her time at Century Regional Facility in Lynwood, the same jail her pal Paris Hilton served time earlier this year. Richie was originally sentenced to 90 hours jail time for driving under the influence of drugs.
