Actress Heather Locklear has avoided charges of driving under the influence by pleading to a lesser offense.

According to a court official in Santa Barbara, California, on January 2, an attorney for Locklear entered a plea of no contest to a charge of misdemeanor reckless driving.

According to Santa Barbara senior deputy district attorney Lee Carter, Locklear was sentenced to three years of probation and was ordered to pay a fine and attend a driver’s education program.

Tests revealed that Locklear had no alcohol in her system after her arrest in September, but prosecutors charged her with driving under the influence of prescription drugs in November.
