LATEST: Actress SHANNeN DOHERTY changed her plea from not guilty to "no contest" at yesterday's (30APR01) court hearing for suspected drink driving.
The former BEVERLY HILLS 90210 star, who was arrested while driving her four-wheel drive in Los Angeles late on 28 December (00), pleaded "no contest" to a drug driving arrest and a special allegation that she refused to submit to a blood alcohol test at the scene of the arrest.
A subsequent police test showed her blood alcohol limit to be at 0.13, well above the Californian legal limit of 0.08. Doherty's decision to change her plea means the cast will not now go to trial. The CHARMED actress is due to the sentenced on 12 June (01). (LE/WNV/ES)
