Former “Baywatch” TV star David Hasselhoff pleaded no contest Thursday to a charge of drunken driving and was ordered to attend an alcohol treatment program for six months.
Hasselhoff, 52, did not attend the court hearing and his lawyer entered the plea on his behalf. The actor was charged with driving under the influence after being stopped in the Los Angeles area in June.
Hasselhoff, who played a lifeguard in the international hit show “Baywatch”, was also ordered to perform 200 hours of community service and given three years probation.
The actor has struggled for several years to control his drinking, taking part in a rehab program in 2002 after admitting he had hit “rock bottom.”
