Adler In The Clear Over 2008 Drug Charge
Former GUNS N' ROSES drummer STEVEN ADLER has had a 2008 felony drug charge dismissed after completing a court-ordered drug program.
The rocker was arrested in January (09) for failing to complete a community service sentence stemming from a July 2008 arrest for possession of narcotics, being under the influence and for an outstanding warrant relating to a 2005 incident.
He pleaded no contest to the drug charge and was subsequently ordered to check himself back into rehab as part of a plea deal.
Adler appeared in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday (03Aug09) and was praised by Commissioner Donald Kennedy for working on his rehabilitation - and he was rewarded by having the felony charge dropped altogether, reports RadarOnline.com.
Speaking after the court hearing, his attorney Barry Gerald Sands admits the dismissal was "about the best you can get".
Adler's previous stints in rehab were filmed for U.S. reality TV show Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. He also participated in spin-off series Sober House.
