CHELSEA, Vt. -- Matt Dillon had his case dismissed after pleading guilty to speeding and paying an $828 fine.
The 44-year-old actor was stopped Dec. 30 on Interstate 91 while driving 106 mph in rural Northern Vermont. Because of the excessive speed, he was also charged with negligent operation of a motor vehicle.
Prosecutor Will Porter said Monday that Dillon agreed to plead guilty to speeding in exchange for having the negligent operation charge dismissed Wednesday, which he said is common in such cases.
Dillon’s lawyer, Mark Kaplan, says the plea was a fair resolution for Dillon.
