Sept. 14 (UPI) -- Pia Zadora, the singer and Broadway star, was ordered to attend impulse control counseling and alcohol treatment after an arrest for attacking her son in May.

The 61-year-old "Butterfly" and "Naked Gun 33 1/3" star was given a 30-day suspended sentence, and if she finishes her treatment program, the charges will be dropped.

Zadora was accused of attempting to choke her 16-year-old son, Jordan, during an argument May 31 at her Summerlin, Nev., home. Police said she sprayed the teen with a water hose, grabbed him around the neck and scratched him during a fight after the teen said he didn't want to go to bed.

The teen wasn't seriously hurt in the incident. Zadora was charged with domestic abuse and coercion.
Zadora had been drinking along her with her husband her husband's adult son at the time.
