After her arrest, she released a statement saying she had consumed one drink the night of her arrest, and apologizing for her "lack of judgment." On December 7, 2009, two days ahead of a scheduled court appearance, she pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of "wet reckless." She was fined $300, sentenced to three years' probation and ordered to undergo alcohol education and complete the Los Angeles County Morgue program.
