PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) –- Soccer star Abby Wambach pled guilty Tuesday to a single count of driving under the influence of intoxicants.

She immediately entered into a diversion agreement, which means if she completes a diversion program her offense will be formally dismissed.

The plea, which was originally scheduled for April 26, was moved up to Tuesday with little notice.

According to the Oregonian/OregonLive, neither Wambach nor her attorney, Ben Eder, gave comments after the hearing.

The Multnomah County DA’s office says Wambach also has to pay $490 in court diversion fees, undergo a drug and alcohol assessment, complete any recommended treatment and attend a victim panel.

While under the diversion program, Wambach must also install an interlock device on her car.

Eder told the judge Wambach’s BAC was .13%. The legal limit is .08%.

Wambach was arrested in Southwest Portland after police say she ran a red light while driving a luxury SUV. An officer assigned to the Traffic Division responded and gave her field sobriety tests, which she failed.

She was booked into Multnomah County Detention Center and released on her own recognizance.

Police said “Wambach was polite and cooperative throughout the investigation.”
