Disney star Debby Ryan caught a major break in her arrest for driving under the influence — she won't have to serve any jail time as part of a plea deal.
The 23-year-old will serve three years of probation, according to TMZ.
The "Jessie" star plead no contest to reckless driving. Debby was arrested in April for drunk driving after an accident in which she slammed her Audi into a Mercedes in Los Angeles. At a court hearing on June 30, in exchange for her plea, prosecutors dropped two misdemeanors.
The actress' blood alcohol level was reportedly 0.11%, just over the 0.08% legal limit.
Along with the probation, Debby also must complete 3 months in a DUI program and perform community service, a common compromise for first-time DUI offenders.
Debby will have to make another appearance in court in September to determine how much she owes for damage to the Mercedes.
Shortly after the arrest, Debby apologized to her fans on Twitter.
"Over the last few days I have had the chance to think about my actions, and I wish I had used better judgment," she said in the statement. "I recognize that I am a role model and have always worked hard to set a good example for my millions of fans."
A year prior to the arrest, Debby was in the news after revealing she was in an abusive relationship.
She said she was forced to end a relationship with an ex when he crossed the line.
"People that demand your password and always look over your shoulder, ask who you're texting, and grab your phone and let themselves in - that's not OK," she told Teen Vogue in 2014. "The time I decided to get out wasn't too late, but it was really, really late in the game. I'm very fortunate because I had people help me get this person out of my life, out of my house - like physically lock the door."
Another time she said he flew across the country to demand he speak to her.
"I hadn't talked to him in a month. I told him to leave my life. So he threw a phone at me and it shattered to pieces and he was screaming, punching the wall, and cussing me out," she said. "Then he started bawling and said he's sorry and loves me."
