Austin Nichols, who portrayed the title character in HBO's "John From Cincinnati," has pleaded guilty to impaired driving and paid a $1,000 fine.

The 27-year-old actor pleaded by mail on Thursday to a misdemeanor charge of driving while visibly impaired.

The plea stems from an incident in Jackson last August, when Nichols was staying with family at nearby Clark Lake.

"John From Cincinnati" was canceled last year. Nichols also appeared in "Deadwood."
