MOORESVILLE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Michael Annett has pleaded guilty to driving while impaired.
Annett entered his plea Friday in North Carolina District Court. He was given a suspended jail sentence of 120 days and sentenced to two years unsupervised probation.
Annett was sentenced to 48 hours of community service and fined $200. He also must forfeit his driver's license for one year.
His sentencing was first reported by Scene Daily.
Annett was arrested Feb. 6 after he ran into another car stopped at a light in Mooresville. Charges of resisting arrest, failure to reduce speed and unlawful use of a mobile phone were dismissed.
Annett is ninth in the Nationwide standings and is scheduled to compete this weekend at Nashville Superspeedway.
"We've continued to test Michael as a condition of his NASCAR probation," NASCAR said in a statement Friday. "He's been very cooperative and has done what we've asked of him. He appears to be doing everything he needs to in order to make this matter right."
