A Las Vegas judge has ordered Pia Zadora to attend an alcohol and impulse control counseling course.
If she should fail to complete the course, the Naked Gun 33 1/3 actress will face 30 days in jail, The Associated Press reports.
Zadora was arrested back in June on domestic abuse and coercion charges. The actress had been trying to get her 16-year-old son to go to bed, so she turned the water hose on him and attempted to prevent him from calling the police.
According to Contact Music, if Zadora manages to stay out of trouble for a year, the case will be dismissed. Failing that, she will be likely face future jail time.
The AP notes that she will begin performing at the Las Vegas restaurant Piero's Italian Cuisine on the weekends, calling "Pia's Palace."
She once won a Razzie for "worst new star of the decade" back in 1990. Her career never took off and she turned to singing.
Zadora's acting credits include Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult, Hairspray and her first role was in Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, which is mainly remembered thanks to appearing on Mystery Science Theater 3000.
