HOUSTON, Oct. 5 (UPI) -- Jeffrey Skilling, the convicted former CEO of Enron Corp., has reportedly settled a $385 fine on a public intoxication charge in Dallas.

The Houston Chronicle Wednesday reported Skilling had pleaded no contest to the charge and mailed the amount to settle the fine for the charge and court costs.

He was arrested in Dallas Sept. 6 in an area featuring shops and restaurants north of downtown. His attorney was quoted as saying Skilling had had drinks with dinner at a Mexican restaurant and had gone for a walk at the time of his arrest.

Dallas police did not give the details of his arrest.

Skilling was found guilty by a federal jury in May of 19 counts of fraud, conspiracy, insider trading and lying to auditors while he was at the Houston-based Enron. Facing up to 30 years in prison, he is scheduled for sentencing later this month.
