Donell pleads guilty to assaulting 17-year-old girlfriend, gets probation.
After being “arrested for outstanding warrants stemming, in part, from his failure to show up for a court hearing last month,” Road Rules: South Pacific cast member Donell Langham pled guilty in a Mass. court “for striking his girlfriend, Erin Soper, then 17, and throwing her to the ground and dragging her several feet,” The Smoking Gun reports. Donell will be on probation for a year and was “directed to enter a batterer’s program, and ordered to stay away from his former teenage paramour.” He apparently hasn’t been staying away from her until now, since “[e]arlier this month, Soper [his former girlfriend] told police that Langham threatened her and tried to intimidate her into not testifying against him.”
