Lane County, Oregon's Assistant District Attorney Alex Pierce confirmed to Fox News that the 39-year-old actor entered his guilty plea to two charges on Tuesday morning. The charges were "menacing – constituting domestic violence and assault in the fourth degree – constituting domestic violence."
The star's sentence will include "probation to the court for three years with multiple conditions imposed."
One of the "conditions" will be required attendance and completion of "a batterers intervention program."
Reps for the actor did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.

Police in Eugene visited Bryan’s residence following a report from a neighbor of a "physical dispute," according to reports at the time. Bryan was found outside an apartment while his girlfriend, 27, was inside a neighboring one.
Bryan allegedly "assaulted the victim, impeded her breathing, and [took] the victim's phone from her when she tried to call 911," police told E! News.
He was later charged with two felonies and six misdemeanors relating to the incident: Two counts of menacing, two counts of assault in the fourth degree, felony strangulation, coercion, harassment and interfering with someone making a report.
A judge waived the star's formal arraignment and he reportedly spent a night in jail before coughing up $8,500 for bail, TMZ reported at the time.
According to a report from the outlet on Tuesday, the other charges against Bryan were dropped as part of a plea deal.
