Michael Madsen Takes a Plea Deal in DUI Case, Will Serve a Few Days in Jail

By Daniel Goldblatt

"Reservoir Dogs" star Michael Madsen copped a plea in his DUI case and will have to spend a few days behind bars.

Madsen pled no contest to one misdemeanor count of driving with a blood alcohol content of .08% or higher. He was sentenced to four days in jail, which he will need to serve within the next year.

The actor was also sentenced to five years probation and was ordered to do community service.

Madsen's attorney, Perry Wander, tells The Blast, "He asks for respect for his family’s privacy. He looks forward to completing his probation."

As The Blast previously reported, Madsen was charged with misdemeanor DUI after he crashed his car into a pole back in March.

Since Madsen already has one DUI on his record, he was charged with one count each of misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol within 10 years of another DUI offense and driving with a .08% blood alcohol content within 10 years of another DUI offense.


According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Michael Madsen was involved in a single car accident on March 24 in Malibu at around 8:00 PM. When officers arrived on the scene, Madsen showed signs of impairment, so he was arrested.

Madsen’s attorney told The Blast at the time of the arrest, “We are waiting for the blood report but we suspect that his accident was caused by side effects to medication that he was taking under a doctor’s care.”

The "Kill Bill" star is no stranger to issues with alcohol. He was busted for DUI in 2012 and did a stint in rehab in 2013.
