RENO, NEV. (AP) - A Hong Kong model who was arrested twice during a trip to the counterculture Burning Man festival in rural Nevada last year has pleaded guilty to a reduced charge, and won’t serve any jail time.

Reno lawyer Tammy Riggs told The Associated Press on Wednesday that 28-year-old Rosemary Vandenbroucke wasn’t in court for the Tuesday proceeding in Lovelock.

Riggs pleaded guilty on behalf of Vandenbroucke to misdemeanor obstructing or delaying a police officer. She says the model and singer most popular in Asia and Europe was fined $1,000 and the case is closed.

Pershing County Deputy District Attorney Bryce Shields was out of the office Wednesday and unavailable for comment.

He said earlier he didn’t think the original felony charge carrying up to six months in prison was warranted.
