Nick Nolte completes probation sentence
The Affliction star was found guilty of driving under the influence and being under the influence of controlled substances after he was found weaving California's Pacific Coast Highway near Los Angeles three years ago.
As part of a plea bargain worked out with prosecutors, the two-time Oscar nominee pleaded no contest to the charges and was sentenced to three years' probation, mandatory drug counselling, random drug and alcohol testing and a 90-day stint in rehab.
In a hearing on Wednesday a Malibu judge ruled that Nolte had successfully completed his probation and the star can now put the past behind him. In an interview with The Insider he talks about one of his main forthcoming projects: "I'm about to do Pride and Glory, a film in New York with Colin Farrell, and he'll just be coming out of rehab so he'll have a lot of support [from me]."
Nolte's other future projects include lending his voice to the DreamWorks' animated flick Over the Hedge, and starring roles in the drama Peaceful Warrior, the romance Paris Je T'Aime, and the mystery The Death of Harry Tobin.
