Matthew Underwood

180 Days in Jail??

NO WAY, BRO

EXCLUSIVE

0118_matthew-underwood_getty"Zoey 101" star Matthew Underwood just dodged a major bullet ... because a judge decided NOT to throw his ass in jail after prosecutors say he committed FIVE probation violations.

We broke the story ... Underwood's probation officer begged the judge to lock up the actor for 180 DAYS after he allegedly failed a drug test and blew off most of the terms of his probation, stemming from a drug arrest back in 2012.

But Friday, the judge DISMISSED the charges -- after Matthew showed proof he completed the conditions of his probation and even stayed clean through a "pre-trial supervision" period.

Underwood is still on probation for another four months ... if he can manage to keep his nose clean.

Good luck!

In the state I live in, you violate probation, you go to jail til the court date, and in most cases you are put back in jail to finish your probation. These celebs get away with everything, just like Lilo will next week. They never learn cuz they thing they are above the law. Typical

The Californian Celebrity Courts are a joke. The folks who are screwed are too lazy or illegal to vote those bastards off the bench.

I don't see what they are making a big deal about? Its just weed. It should be legal already and it should not be a problem. Instead of chasing after people smoking an HERB, coz that's what it is, it isn't a drug, they should be out there catching REAL CRIMINALS! And besides, throwing people in jail is not going to curb a habit. I don't kno why Americans and the USA can't get that through their thick heads!
