Actor Matt Dillon, who faced a criminal charge for driving 106 mph on a Vermont interstate, had the charge dismissed after pleading guilty to speeding and paying an $828 fine.

The 44-year-old "Crash" co-star was stopped Dec. 30 on Interstate 91 in rural northern Vermont. Because of the excessive speed, he was also charged with negligent operation of a motor vehicle.

Prosecutor Will Porter said Monday that Dillon agreed to plead guilty to the traffic violation in exchange for having the negligent operation charge dismissed Wednesday, which he said is common in such cases.

Dillon’s lawyer, Mark Kaplan, says the plea was a fair resolution for Dillon.
