Mischa Barton to plead guilty to drunk driving
( dpa ) - Actress Mischa Barton is to accept a plea deal in her drunk driving case, sparing her any jail time, People magazine reported Tuesday.
The former O.C. star will plead no contest to DUI at her arraignment Thursday in Beverly Hills court, and agree to serve a three-year unsupervised probation term, the report said.
Barton will also be sentenced to a three-month alcohol-education class, and pay a fine of approximately 1,700 dollars. In addition, a marijuana possession charge against the actress will be dropped, due to the small amount found.
Barton, 22, was arrested for drunk driving in Los Angeles in December, after sheriff deputies spotted her weaving between two lanes of traffic and she failed to signal when making a turn.
