The American Pie actress was accused of sexually molesting a neighbors dog. Sounds ridiculous, doesn't it? Natasha has had her share of problems and even Michael Rapaport wrote a report on what a terrible tenant she was. She tried to dodge the court after missing 4 hearings and now she decided to face the music. Here's more:
Actress Natasha Lyonne, the star of "American Pie" accused of threatening to sexually molest a dog, turned herself in at a New York court on Friday.
The 27-year-old faced a number of charges including criminal mischief, harassment and trespassing after accusations she threatened to sexually molest her former neighbor's dog and ripped a mirror off the wall during a 2004 argument.
At the Manhattan Criminal Court appearance, drug counselor Heather Hayes said Lyonne had completed an in-patient drug program in February and continued to attend outpatient rehabilitation groups.
Judge Anthony Ferrara said the charges would be dropped if the actress stayed out of trouble for the next six months.The good news is she is clearly working hard to get better. Let's hope she stays clean, out of trouble and away from dogs for a very long time.
