Ex-‘Idol’ Guilty of Slugging Bouncer

“American Idol” alum Haley Reinhart took the stand in her battery case, but her defense fell woefully short — she was found guilty of hitting a bouncer.
Haley took the witness stand in her own defense Monday, but the judge said her answers were “evasive, argumentative and sometimes implausible” … according to the Chicago Tribune. She was ordered to pay a $500 fine, but the conviction could be wiped from her record if she keeps her nose clean for 2 years.
Haley tells TMZ, “I didn’t see it going this way. The judge was wrong in his interpretation and had a cold and unfortunate perspective on the case.”
