Former NBA forward Dennis Rodman pleaded guilty to violating city noise laws with a raucous 40th birthday party.

Rodman was not in Superior Court but entered pleas through his attorney to three misdemeanor counts of disturbing the peace and illegally using sound amplification equipment.

He was ordered to pay a $1,000 fine and $500 in court costs.

Rodman was charged in connection with a May party at his Newport Beach home. If convicted, he could have faced up to 18 months in jail and $3,000 in fines.

Rodman's loud parties have prompted neighbors to complain repeatedly over the past several years, and police have visited his home more than 70 times. Rodman has paid more than $3,000 in fines for noise violations.

In an unrelated matter, Rodman also agreed to pay $200 to settle a boat speeding ticket received in Newport Harbor on Aug. 3 in his 47-foot boat, Sexual Chocolate.
