Former The O.C. star Mischa Barton will avoid jail time by admitting she was driving drunk in exchange for marijuana possession charges being dropped in court on Thursday. Barton was pulled over by the LAPD last December after she was seen straddling two lanes of traffic. Ironically, her O.C. character died in a car accident after being hit by a drunk driver. Sources say a charge of driving without a license will be reduced to a traffic violation. However, Barton will receive three years of unsupervised probation and a fine of $1,700. In addition, she’ll be required to attend an alcohol education class.
