R&B singer Miguel recently pleaded no contest to the charge of DUI, which stems from his traffic arrest back in August 2013. The 28-year-old artist was remorseful during his court appearance last week where he admitted that he made a terrible mistake.

According to TMZ, Miguel apologized for driving while being intoxicated.

“Driving with alcohol in my system was reckless. I’m really sorry and I’m taking responsibility for this mistake,” he said.

A judge placed Miguel on three years of informal probation and ordered him to complete an alcohol education class. The ‘Adorn’ singer was also slapped with a $360 fine.

With the DUI case behind him, Miguel can continue to work on the follow-up to his stellar 2012 release, ‘Kaleidoscope Dream.’

“It’s coming great,” he told Billboard. “I have a very clear vision, and I have a very clear goal. I know what I want, and I’m getting there.”
