Jason Wahler sentenced to 60 days in jail, AA meetings, anger management

Jason Wahler will go to jail for two months as a result of his fall arrest for battery.

The Laguna Beach and The Hills star “was sentenced to 60 days in county jail and 36 months probation Tuesday after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor battery charge, stemming from his arrest in September for punching a tow-truck driver and a Department of Transportation officer,” according to E! Online. He also has “to attend 104 Alcoholics Anonymous Meetings and 36 hours of anger management classes and to stay away from his victims.”

Back then, the car Jason was in “was blocked by a tow truck and a city vehicle, which belonged to a crew that was moving an illegally parked car on Wilshire Boulevard,” E! reports. “According to the L.A. City Attorney’s Office, Wahler and [Kristin] DeLuca jumped out of their car and began hurling epithets at the DOT officer and one of the tow-truck drivers, both of whom were black. Wahler then hit both men, after which DeLuca kicked and spit at the driver whom Wahler had already slugged.”

He has until May 4 to go to jail; before then, he has to go to court again as a result of his weekend arrest for underage drinking.
