Abdul Put On Probation

The STRAIGHT UP star was ordered to pay $900 (GBP474) in penalties and fines in addition to paying the victim $775 (GBP407) as compensation for the damage caused in the accident last year (DEC04).

The charge faced by Abdul carried a maximum penalty of six months in jail and a $1,000 (GBP526) fine.
