American Pie star Natasha Lyonne turned herself in at a Manhattan, New York court yesterday (15DEC06) almost a year after a bench warrant was issued for her arrest (JAN06).
The warrant for the 27-year-old actress was issued after she missed four court hearings on charges from harassment to trespassing. She also stands accused of making threats to sexually molest a neighbour's dog during a row two years ago (04).
Lyonne's drug counsellor accompanied the actress to court and told the authorities she was still attending outpatient rehab groups after checking into an in-patient drug programme in February (06).
JUDGE ANTHONY FERRARA declared all the charges against Lyonne would be dropped if she continued with her rehabilitation and stayed out of trouble for the next six months.
