Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee pleaded no contest
Tuesday in a California courtroom to felony spousal abuse charges in
connection with an attack on his now-estranged wife, ex-"Baywatch" star
Pamela Anderson. Reuters reports that the tattooed drummer could face
up to 12 months in jail. Lee -- who was arrested in February after Anderson
claimed that he struck her while she was holding the couple's then-7-week-old
son, Dylan -- remains free on $500,000 bail pending his sentencing on May 20.
Lee's spokesperson, Hayley Sumner, had no comment on the matter, although
the drummer released the following statement through Sumner's office: "I am
happy that I am going to be able to see my children. On the advice of counsel, I
cannot say anything else at this time." Under a court order issued Tuesday, Lee
will be allowed once-weekly monitored visits with his children.
