Lori Petty, best known for her roles in Tank Girl and A League of Their Own, will plead no contest Friday to a misdemeanor DUI charge and serve five years’ probation, according to a source close to the case.

Petty, 45, was arrested last May after hitting a 14-year-old skateboarder while driving in Venice, Calif. The boy’s injuries were minor.

The actress will pay fines, receive outpatient treatment and attend AA meetings. A second DUI charge was dismissed as part of her plea deal.

Petty will not attend the hearing in Los Angeles County Superior Court, but will be represented by her attorney, Blair Berk.
