Morgan Cleared Of Taking Off Alcohol Bracelet

LATEST: A judge has cleared U.S. comedian TRACY MORGAN of wrongdoing after he removed his alcohol monitoring ankle bracelet for medical reasons last week (ends26Oct07). The former Saturday Night Live regular was ordered to wear the band - known as a SCRAM bracelet - in May (07), after pleading guilty to driving under the influence in New York last year (06), an offence which violated his probation from a previous DUI arrest in Los Angeles in December 2005. A hearing at Los Angeles County Court last week (ends26Oct07) heard that Morgan was unable to continue wearing the bracelet because of an undisclosed medical condition, according to TMZ.com. And on Tuesday (27Oct07) a judge agreed Morgan no longer has to wear the monitoring device after studying photos of the funnyman's medical problem. The judge also ruled the comedian has now completed his probation for drink-driving.
