R&B singer Jeremih can breathe easy again after coming to terms with a plea deal in his publicized birthday arrest last summer.
According to reports, the 28-year-old crooner agreed to be on probation for 24 months to avoid a more serious punishment.
The singer pled no contest to one count of reckless driving, and the DUI charge was tossed. As part of the deal, he’ll have to complete an alcohol and drug ed course. He’ll be on probation for 2 years. The singer was pulled over on his 28th birthday back in July and spent the night in jail. The incident didn’t stop him from hitting the clubs … the next night.

Back in December 2014, Jeremih hopped onto Twitter to address a publicized plane scuffle.
According to reports, the arrest stemmed from Jeremih and his entourage arriving late for a flight and trying to bust into the plane’s closed door.
Jeremih and a friend somehow pried open the jetway door and at least one of the wayward guys scurried through. Here’s the thing. That’s illegal. So Jeremih and his friend were yanked off the plane, arrested and charged with obstruction and disorderly conduct. The guy who tried sneaking onto the plane was charged with defiant trespass. (TMZ)
Jeremih and his crew were eventually released following the arrest.
According to Port Authority police, a member of Jeremih Felton’s entourage, who was already on the U.S. Airways flight to Phoenix, opened the closed jet way door to allow the singer and another man onto the plane. The men were being held by Port Authority police Friday evening, but were expected to be released barring any outstanding warrants. (NBC New York)
