Jason Wahler just got a dose of reality—and not of the MTV variety.
A Los Angeles jury today ordered the former Laguna Beach and sometime Hills day player to shell out big bucks after committing battery on a tow-truck driver more than two years ago.
Wahler has been ordered to pay driver Dario Stevenson $5,000 for a September 2006 altercation during which the Beach bum allegedly punched him in the face, hurled racial slurs in his direction, and generally made a law-breaking nuisance of himself.
Not that the payout signals any sort of end to the fallout Wahler may face.
