Actress Tatum O’Neal, who was arrested for attempting to buy crack, pled guilty yesterday in New York.

The 44-year-old actress paid a $95 fee and walked out of Manhattan Criminal Court with a smile and a renewed pledge to stay away from the drugs that have plagued her career.

“I’m going back to my meetings and back to my life,” O’Neal said.

She didn’t comment on her vacillating stories about how she turned back to drugs because her dog died or alternatively because she was researching for a new role as a drug addict.
