Rocker Courtney Love pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct Wednesday for hitting a club-goer on the head with a microphone stand during a performance in New York City.
A Manhattan criminal court judge granted Love a conditional discharge, meaning her case would be sealed after one year if she pays the victim $2,236 to cover medical expenses, joins a drug-treatment program and does not commit any other crimes. If Love violates the conditions, she could face 15 days in jail.
The case stems from an incident in March, when Love hit Gregory Burgett, 24, of London, Ky., with a microphone stand as he watched her show at a Manhattan nightclub. Burgett needed three staples in his head to close the wound.
Love opens a five-date California tour Sunday at the 4th & B club in San Diego.
