Photo Courtesy - ABC News(NEW YORK) -- A former JetBlue flight attendant, responsible for creating a well-publicized onboard tantrum, pleaded guilty to attempted criminal mischief in the second and fourth degree at a New York court Tuesday.

With his plea, Steven Slater reached a deal prosecutors avoiding any jail time.  Instead, Slater has agreed to receive mental health treatment and pay a restitution of $10,000.

The plea deal spares Slater from serving a sentence of one to three years.

The full story of what happened Aug. 9 has still not been told.  According to reports, Slater allegedly cursed at a passenger, grabbed a beer, and exited a plane by deploying the emergency exit chute.
