Well I’m not sure if breakout artist The Weeknd earned this, but the R&B artist got caught in a scuffle in Las Vegas and recently pleaded no contest to punching a Vegas police officer.

Court records show that The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, pled no contest to a misdemeanour battery charge in the  hotel fight in January.

The 25 year old has to complete 50 hours of community service, attend impulse control counselling and alcohol evaluation and pay 1000 bucks to a Las Vegas police injured officers fund. He was in town for a nightclub concert.
