LAS VEGAS (AP) — Environmental activist Erin Brockovich has pleaded no contest to operating a boat while intoxicated following her arrest at Lake Mead.
She was scheduled to stand trial Oct. 7, but appeared in court Aug. 28.
Justice of the Peace Rodney Burr ordered her to take an online boater safety course and complete 25 hours of community service. Records show she paid a $750 fine on the spot.
Brockovich was arrested in June at a marina on the Colorado River reservoir after a game warden noticed she was struggling while trying to moor her motor boat. Breath tests showed her blood-alcohol level was just over twice the legal driving limit.
Brockovich, who's the namesake of a 2000 movie starring Julia Roberts, called the incident "clearly a big mistake."
