It's time to pay. Fred Durst, the lead singer of nu metal band Limp Bizkit, has been pleaded no contest in assault charge.

The 37-year-old man was pleaded no contest to seven misdemeanors, including assault, battery and reckless driving, for intentionally hitting two people with his car. In the court documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on August 16th obtained by CelebTV.com, it is stated that Durst hit two L.A. residents with his vehicle "on or about October 26, 2006."

He as a result was charged with seven misdemeanor counts in total, including two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, three counts of battery, one count of making a criminal threat and one charge of reckless driving on the highway.

Durst who entered the pleas on August 16th was handed a suspended 120-day jail sentence, ordered to perform 20 hours of community service and fined $1,500. He, in addition, was also slapped with a restraining order, under which he must stay at least 100 yards away from the victims whose names weren't disclosed, cannot "annoy, harass, strike, threaten or otherwise disturb the peace" of them, and he cannot possess a firearm.
