Michelle Valles, KXAN news anchor for the 5, 6 and 10 p.m. broadcasts, pleaded guilty yesterday to a misdemeanor reckless driving charge and was sentenced to two years probation. She was pulled over by police back in November for driving erratically and over the speed limit.
According to the Austin American Statesman, a drunken driving charge against her was dropped. The Austin anchor was ordered to perform 60 hours of community service, pay a $200 fine and be evaluated for counseling needs. If she doesn’t meet probation requirements, she could spend up to 30 days in the Travis County Jail.
