American Pie star Chris Klein pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor drink-driving charge on April 29 at Vista, California, Superior Court.

The actor, 26, was arrested in Encinitas on Feb. 5--the same month he split from fiance Katie Holmes--while he was driving a 2003 BMW along a San Diego County highway.

According to the criminal complaint, Klein's blood-alcohol level at the time was 0.20--more than double the legal limit of 0.08 per cent.

On Friday, Klein was fined $1,800 and ordered to perform 150 hours of community service.

Klein's attorney Blair Berk says, "Chris dealt with this very seriously and responsibly and he's pleased that it's been resolved."
