Christensen sentenced to community service

Christensen has been ordered to complete the 20-day Hollywood Beautification program after pleading “no contest” to a charge of misdemeanour battery following a violent altercation with his girlfriend.

He was arrested in September (09) after dragging his lover 30 feet (9.14 metres) as she clung to the side of his car following a heated argument, reports

Witnesses allege the Shattered Glass producer was behind the wheel and hit the accelerator when the woman – who hasn’t been identified – reached into the vehicle to grab her purse.

Christensen was also handed three years probation and must undergo a year of domestic violence counselling.
