The last few months have been rough for Lost star Matthew Fox, but things could be looking up; he's going to avoid jail time for his DUI arrest last month—subject to a few conditions. Fox was pulled over in Oregon back in early May for swerving out of his lane; the cops found him to be intoxicated and arrested him. After striking a plea deal with prosecutors, he pleaded no contest to one count of driving under the influence. The 42-year-old actor—who has also been fighting a recently-dropped assault lawsuit and allegations that he beats women—is banned from driving for one year, and may not drink any alcohol during that period. He'll also be required to complete a drug and alcohol treatment program. If he complies with all these restrictions, the case will go away. Fox can console himself that he's not the only celebrity to be ordered to stay away from booze recently: Bobby Brown was banned from drinking for 30 days following his DUI arrest back in April.
