Anderson was arrested and charged with DUI in July after police discovered him asleep at the wheel at the intersection of Chamblee-Tucker Road and I-85. 

At the time of his arrest, Anderson failed a field sobriety test and refused a breathalyzer.

According to a release from Anderson's attorney, Michael Hawkins, Anderson was "sentenced to 12 months of probation, which can become non-reporting once he completes 64 hours of community service, pays a $700 fine, completes a Risk Reduction defensive driving program, and attends a MADD victim impact panel."

"From day one I have maintained my innocence to the DUI charge, and I am glad that charge was dismissed," Anderson expressed in the statement.
