Actress Roz Kelly, who parlayed a brief stint as Fonzie's Happy Days girlfriend Pinky into a sort-of forever TV-land notoriety, pleaded no contest in Southern California Thursday to going Annie Oakley on her neighborhood with a 12-gauge shotgun.
Sentencing is set for October 20. Until then, the ex-sitcom star has been ordered to undergo 90 days of evaluation to help the judge decide between jail time or probation.
Unable to post bail, Kelly has been in police, or otherwise, custody since last November 29, when she was arrested at her North Hollywood home for shooting up a neighbor's house, as well as two cars.
"I never meant to become Annie Oakley," Kelly told the National Enquirer last January.
The actress, who turns 56 next week, alternately said the rampage, which produced no injuries, was provoked by: (a) a noisy car alarm; and, (b) chronic knee pain (hers).
In February, Kelly, who unsuccessfully sought to serve as her own legal counsel, was ordered to undergo psychological screening to see if she was competent to stand trial. (She was, the experts declared.)
With the no-contest plea, prosecutors agreed to drop the car-shooting charges. Kelly copped only to the house shooting.
Kelly appeared in just three episodes of Happy Days as Pinky Tuscadero--albeit three Very Special Ones, titled, "Fonzie Loves Pinky" (circa 1976).
Pinky Tuscadero is not to be confused with her TV character sister, Leather Tuscadero, played by real-life rocker Suzi Quatro.
