Emile Hirsh has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault. He is sentenced to 15 days in jail for attacking a female at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.

The 30-year old actor will serve his sentence in Summit County jail. He will also pay a $4,750 fine and complete 50 hours of community service. The punishment could have been severe but a plea deal with prosecutors reduced it to just 15 days. If he violates any term of deal, he will have to spend a full year in prison, Reuters reports.

“Speed Racer” star put Daniele Bernferd, an executive of Paramount Studio in a chokehold on January 25 at Tao nightclub during Sundance film festival.

According to the court documents, Hirsch was drunk when he approached Bernferd in the nightclub at about 3:15 a.m. and assaulted her.

“I was subjected to a violent and unprovoked attack by a complete stranger,” statement from Bernfeld reads. “The defendant Emile Hirsch put me in a chokehold, pulled me off my feet and threw me on the floor. With the full force of his weight, he chocked me until I blacked out. It took two people to pull him off me, and if not for their intervention, the attack would have continued. I thought I was going to die.”

In February, Hirsch was charged with felony assault. His attorney claimed that the actor was too intoxicated that he could not remember what happened that evening.

“Emile consumed an enormous amount of alcohol on the evening in question and he has no memory of what happened.” Robert Offer, said in mid-February hearing.

Hirsch reportedly apologized to the victim for his wrong and reckless behavior. In February, he checked into the rehab as well to make sure nothing like that ever happen again.

Emile Hirsch’ last film “10,000 Saints” was just released four days ago. While three of his upcoming films “The Runaround”, “Vincent-N-Roxxy” and “The Autopsy of Jane Doe” are in development.
