Our Los Angeles DUI Lawyers have learned that actress Estella Warren has received what the Australian press is calling the “DUI Plea Deal of the Century”
TheÃ‚Â Planet of the Apes star allegedly crashed into three cars, attacked a police officer and then escaped custody while she was being booked back in May.
She was recaptured and charged with DUI, hit-and-run driving, battery on a cop and resisting arrest.
But Warren has avoided possible jail time after striking a deal with Los Angeles City prosecutors.
According toÃ‚Â TMZ.com, she has agreed to plead guilty to DUI and the remaining three charges against her have been dropped.
Warren has also been sentenced to 60 months of summary probation and ordered to pay over $US1900 ($A1838) in costs and penalties.
And the actress tells the gossip site she’s glad to put the case to rest.
“I take my actions and their consequences very seriously. I can’t express enough how grateful I am that no one was injured or hurt. Moving forward I am focusing all my efforts on my career, my family and being a good influence to others.”
That’s fairly good, but not the deal of the century.Ã‚Â Los Angeles DUI cases are a little more negotiable than those in Orange County.
