Palms owner Maloof pleads no contest to DUI

Palms owner George Maloof pleaded no contest Thursday to a drunken driving charge he picked up in October.

Maloof was ordered to pay nearly $600 in fines, take a DUI class and participate in a victim impact panel.

Maloof was pulled over while driving into Spanish Trail, where he lives. His blood alcohol level was just above the legal limit of 0.08, authorities said.
