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.
