He’s expected to plead guilty in exchange for a dismissal of the charge if he pays a $2,000 fine, attends drug counseling, finishes 200 hours of community service and does not have any further legal scrapes.

"We are extremely pleased that the charge against Bruno is going to be dismissed," said his lawyer, Blair Berk.
