Hotel heiress Paris Hilton was placed on three years probation on Monday after pleading no contest to alcohol-related reckless driving.
Hilton, 25, did not appear for the hearing at Los Angeles Superior Court. The plea to a reduction of an original charge of driving under the influence was entered by her attorneys Howard Weitzman and Shawn Chapman Holley.
Hilton’s rep, Elliot Mintz said that the Hilton was fined $390 and ordered to attend a 12-hour driver education program. Mintz said,
I just spoke with Paris an hour ago, and she’s happy the matter is behind her.
Judge Michael Sauer gave Hilton the option of reducing her probation to 24 months if she completed 40 hours of community service. Paris has yet to make a decision.
The fines, plus penalty assessments, totaled about $1,500.
Hilton was arrested September 7 after allegedly being seen weaving on a Hollywood street in her Mercedes-Benz.
Police said that Paris appeared intoxicated and failed a field sobriety test. She had a blood alcohol level of .08%, the level at which an adult driver is in violation of the law.
But later Hilton admitted that she might be â€˜speeding a little bitâ€™ explaining,
I had one margarita and I was starving because I had not eaten all dayâ€¦I wanted to have an In-N-Out burger.
