Shemar Moore, who was arrested on suspicion of driving while under the influence in the early hours of June 1st in Los Angeles, pleaded no-contest Friday June 22nd.
Shemar Moore is a free man. The actor, who was arrested in the early hours of June 1st after being pulled over by Los Angeles police for reportedly speeding near Santa Monica Boulevard at 1:30 am, was pleaded no contest to DUI charge Friday June 22nd.
Initially facing six months in jail and a $1000 fine, Shemar was sentenced to three years' probation, ordered to pay the standard $1,400 DUI fine and had a choice of either performing 80 hours of community service or spending 80 hours in an alcohol-education program.
Shemar's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, appeared before Judge Michael Sauer and entered a no-contest plea to Exhibition of Speed. The two DUI charges, as a result, were dismissed.
Back on June 1st, Shemar was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol just after 1 a.m. after he was caught exceeding the 65 mph speed limit. Per the arrest report, he "displayed signs of alcohol impairment and a DUI investigation was conducted." Shemar was soon thereafter arrested and taken to a local police station, before being released after posting $5,000 bail.
