“Happy Gilmore” star Christopher McDonald just got the equivalent of a penalty stroke in his DUI case … TMZ has learned.
According to court records … the actor pled guilty to driving with a blood-alcohol level of .08 or higher stemming from his October 2017 arrest near Lake Arrowhead, CA. He was sentenced to 35 hours of community service, 3-year summary probation, and an alcohol education program which he already completed … and a day in jail.
The good news — he got credit for time served in a jail cell following his arrest … so he doesn’t have to spend any additional time behind bars. His other misdemeanor DUI charge was dropped.
We broke the story … Christopher, best known as Shooter McGavin, got busted after driving his Porsche off the highway, taking out a gas meter and crashing into an embankment.
McDonald was also arrested for DWI in 2013 in North Carolina.
