Nickelodeon Star Ryan Rottman

Gets DUI Charges Dismissed

11/3/2011 9:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ryan Rottman
Ryan Rottman
, the Nickelodeon/90210 star who was charged with drunk driving, will not have a DUI on his record, because both DUI charges have been thrown out.

Rottman copped a lesser plea in court today to misdemeanor reckless driving.  He was arrested in Hollywood last July, minutes after leaving an Irish pub where he partied with Zac Efron and Rumer Willis (below).



Given that Rottman allegedly blew a .19 -- more than twice the legal limit -- seems like something was wonky with the case.

Under the deal, Rottman will be placed on 3 years probation and was fined $390. He's also required to take a DMV safe drivers class.

Opposite Lindsay he got off easy and can continue to be rolemodel for the youth.

A criminal conviction ala DUI requires specific handling of evidence; a good DUI lawyer can muscle out of a DUI most of the time. He was stupid to blow, he should have called his lawyer.

Lawyer probably challenged the validity of whatever breathalyser they used.

If Lindsay Lohan can get away with everything so should he and ANYONE else in LA!!! Go commit crimes in LA kids and use the Lohan excuse, everyone should be treated equally by the justice system.

So where's Rottman's jail mug shot? Everybody else gets mug shots posted, and all we get for Rottman is publicity shots.

Seriously, didn't that Mitchell Musso kid just get busted for a DUI too? These Disney kids need more guidance because its evident that as soon as they venture into adult hood they can't handle it.

Not proud of this but I got a DUI 4 years ago and I blew .15 and got 30 days suspended lic. 2500 in fines, dropped insurance and countless meetings I had to attend. Still a slap on the wrist but really 300 fine and 3year probation. Under that probation he is not allowed to be in a bar promise you he will be.

The Judge went easy on him. He (the judge) took into consideration this guy was hanging out w/ Rumor "Horse Face" WIllis and decided that was punishment enough.

I thought when you got a DUI you lost your license for at least a year. Oh, I forgot, this guy has done a show on Nickelodeon and they think he's a star. Different rules apply.

That's what money and fame can BUY you. Good lawyering takes precedence over common sense and safety. Someone I know plead for the 1st offense and got a $1,500.00 fine, 3 yr probation and restricted license for 6 months. How does the judicial system live with themselves letting money lead over what's right and SAFE for the public they represent?

By the way, just how old is this kid? Was he underage? Good role model for Nickelodean kids huh? I KNOW Rumor is a minor, wonder what her parents think of her driving around with a VERY DRUNK idiot?

if you ever want to break the law and put peoples lives at risk drink driving LA is the place to be, it's obvious the celebrities run this town, not the police.

This is the biggest bag of bull**** I've ever heard. I'm so disgusted at the legal system...I don't care who you are and what your excuse is, you should have been charged. I've had a DUI in the state of CA. Thank god they sentenced me to everything they did because I am part of whatever percent who actually learned from this. I don't drink anymore, I am sober. Granted it wasn't JUST the DUI that made me clean my act up, it helped me realize I had a problem. Too bad this ******* will never know what it meant to actually get behind the wheel and drive drunk.. All he will know is that he got let off. He will most likely get caught for drunk driving again. Let's just pray no one gets hurt.
