"Lost" star Matthew Fox won't be locked up after his DUI arrest last month -- TMZ has learned, the actor struck a plea deal with prosecutors that will keep him out of jail.

TMZ broke the story ... Fox was pulled over in Bend, Oregon May 4th after police observed the actor swerving out of his lane. Cops decided Fox was intoxicated and placed him under arrest.

In exchange for no jail time, Fox pled no contest to one count of DUI.

As part of the deal, Fox's can't drink alcohol for one year and is required to complete a drug and alcohol treatment program.

If Fox complies with all the court's orders, the entire case will go away.

this "plea deal" is nothing special for first time offenders. but 85% of the time they do not work out.. it is safe to assume that if you are caught one time for DUI it IS NOT the first time you've driven drunk. They are serious drinkers and will/can not quit for a year. if they are subject to random piss tests eventually they will get caught AGAIN.

"Fox's driving privileges have been revoked for one year, during which he also can't drink alcohol."

I understand the "driving privileges (not a year though) and the alcohol classes about drinking and driving)", but to tell someone they can't drink for a year on a first offense. When there's probably a 30-40% chance the Judge is an alcoholic.

And no I haven't been in a club for years or even had a drink of alcohol for years. Not a prude, just don't like the taste (or the hangovers) and happy to be that way. :-}_~

He's an idiot and the media coverage is sad. Reading the story it paints him in good light with his "sacrifices" he is making. I live in Bend. He didn't even show up for trial. It was all lawyer work through plee bargains. He still hasn't shown for his mugshot because the jail camera mysteriously "broke" that night but fine for other mug shots later that night and following day. Sad world when money buys you freedom and root problems are paid to disappear.
