Former "Saturday Night Live" comedian Tracy Morgan pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor drunk driving charge in a Manhattan court Wednesday.

A judge ordered Morgan, who currently stars in the sitcom "30 Rock,” to undergo a doctor-supervised alcohol program and complete community service.

Morgan's lawyer says his client will probably talk to school groups about the dangers of drunk driving.

Police stopped Morgan on the Henry Hudson Parkway back in November. Officers say he smelled of alcohol and failed a breathalyzer test. Morgan's license was revoked and he was ordered to pay a $1,000 fine.

At the time of his arrest, the 38-year-old was already on probation for another drunk driving charge in Hollywood.
