cody-longo-DUI-alcohol-classes.jpgIn June, Nickelodeon star Cody Longo  (“Hollywood Heights”) was arrested for DUI, after repeatedly flashing his high beams at another driver. The cop who pulled him over determined Longo was under the influence and he was taken into custody where he blew over twice the legal limit of 0.8. He was later released on bond.

TMZ is reporting that Longo has struck a plea bargain that will help him avoid jail time. He must plead no contest to one count of DUI and in exchange, he is required to attend 10 alcohol education classes and is put on three years probation.

At the time of the arrest, a rep for Longo called the incident “an unfortunate misunderstanding” and said that “Cody takes it very seriously as his focus is music and acting.”
