Anthony Pleads Guilty To Reduced Charge In DUI Case

By  | 

Denver Nuggets All-Star Carmelo Anthony is being ordered to serve a year's probation and complete 24 hours community service after pleading guilty to a reduced charge of driving while ability-impaired.

Prosecutors dropped a more serious charge of driving under the influence.

Anthony also pleaded guilty to failure to stay in a single lane. In addition to probation and community service, he'll pay $1,000 in fines, fees and court costs.

Anthony said afterward that he was happy it was over so he'll get a chance to take care of his business.

Anthony was pulled over on Interstate 25 on April 14th. Denver police said he was weaving and failed to dim his lights, then failed a series of sobriety tests.

He arrived in court today with his fiancee, LaLa Vazquez. Also in the courtroom were Nuggets coach George Karl, and vice president of basketball operations Mark Warkentien.
