Megan Hauserman has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence.
The Megan Wants a Millionaire star reached a deal with Florida prosecutors and plead guilty on March 22 in exchange for a sentence of six months probation, a $1,000 fine, and a six-month suspension of her driver's license. Hauserman was also ordered to perform 100 hours of community service and forced to attend DUI school, E! News reported Monday.
Hauserman -- who also appeared on I Love Money, Charm School, Rock of Love, and Beauty and the Geek -- was arrested on April 15 of last year after she was reportedly pulled over for weaving in and out of lanes in her black 2008 BMW while racking up a speed of 75mph in a 55mph zone in Miami Beach around 3:15AM, according to officials.
After officers smelled alcohol on her breath and recognized her bloodshot eyes and slurred speech, they issued her a sobriety test. Hauserman failed the breathalyzer, which subsequently landed her in a Miami detention center where she was booked for DUI, E! News reported.
Hauserman was reportedly released the following morning on April 16 after posting a $1,000 bond.
According to E! News, the reality TV star was making her way to an upscale Pompano Beach strip club to host a nude $250,000 beauty contest at the time of her arrest.
