Ne-Yo Pleads Guilty, Singer Gets Community Service and Class

R&B singer/songwriter Ne-Yo plead guilty to reckless driving and driving without a license in Georgia this week. Stemming from his February 19th arrest in Cobb County, the charges earned the singer 24 hours of community service, a $1,000 fine, a defensive driving class and a required concert for the local Boys & Girls Club. The “Closer” singer was arrested on February 19th at 2:28am, when police clocked his Range Rover going 105 mph in a 55 mph zone. He was later charged with reckless driving and received a ticket for not having a Georgia license. When asked about his arrest in an interview with the Atlanta Journal Constitution last week the singer said “They’re trying to make me put on that little orange vest and pick up trash. . . . I’m hoping I can take a class or something. I hope we can work it out soon.”
