Actor Shemar Moore Pleaded No Contest to DUI Charge

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.
