Lyonne Pleads Guilty to Drunk Driving

08/27/2002 at 12:00 PM EDT

"American Pie" actress Natasha Lyonne pleaded guilty Monday to a drunken driving charge stemming from a crash of a rental car in Miami Beach last year, reports the Associated Press. Under a plea agreement, Lyonne, 23, will have her driver's license suspended and her car impounded for 10 days, state attorney's office spokesman Ed Griffith said. She also was fined $255 and sentenced to six months probation and 50 hours of community service. Lyonne was arrested by Miami Beach police at around 2 a.m. on Aug. 21, 2001, after she smashed up her rental car while rounding a curve. Neither she nor her passenger, actor Adam Goldberg, was injured. At the time of her arrest, it was reported that Lyonne told the officer on the scene: "I'm a movie star. Can I talk to my entertainment lawyer?" Lyonne was arrested on charges of careless driving, leaving the scene of an accident and driving under the influence, and she spent eight hours in county jail before being released on $2,000 bond. Lyonne, a New York native, is best known for her role in the "American Pie" movies, but she has also logged screen time in such films as "Slums of Beverly Hills" and "Scary Movie 2."
