Michael Madsen Cops Plea Deal in DUI Case



Michael Madsen Cops Plea Deal in DUI Case

LOS ANGELES (TMZ) — Michael Madsen just cut a deal in his DUI case … and he’ll spend a few days in jail.

Michael pled no contest Thursday to one misdemeanor count of driving with a .10% blood alcohol content and was sentenced to 4 days in jail and 5 years probation. He’s also been ordered to complete community service in the hospital morgue program.

TMZ broke the story … the veteran actor was busted for DUI back in March, after cops say he crashed his Land Rover into a pole in Malibu. Police say Michael reeked of booze, and he was arrested after bombing a field sobriety test.

The “Reservoir Dogs” star was eventually hit with misdemeanor DUI charges … and it even cost him a movie gig.

Michael’s been down this road before … he was also busted for DUI in Malibu way back in 2012, when he BAC was twice the legal limit. He entered a 30-day rehab after that bust, and the judge also ordered him to get outpatient treatment.

TMZ refers to to a studio-established “thirty mile zone” to monitor rules for filming in Hollywood. The center of the zone was the offices of The Association of Motion Pictures and Television Producers, formerly at Beverly and La Cienega Boulevard.
