Actor Matthew Newton has been ordered to pay a US hotel clerk $US11,500 ($A11,100) but won't have an assault conviction recorded against him, it's been reported.
The troubled Underbelly star was arrested in April over allegations he punched the Miami hotel clerk in the face.
He was also charged with trespassing at popular Miami watering hole Mr Moe's Restaurant and Bar.
The Seven Network reports the charges will be dismissed on the condition Newton pays the clerk $US11,500, apologises in writing and completes 50 hours of community service and an anger management course.
His lawyer told reporters in Miami it was a good outcome for Newton, who had faced up to a year in jail.
"We're very pleased that the case is going to be dismissed, and this chapter is over," David Oscar Markus said.
Newton has also been ordered not to go near Mr Moe's or the clerk.
Terry Chavez from the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office later said media reports that the charges had been dismissed or dropped were incorrect.
"He was offered, with the victim's approval, a pre-trial diversion program," she told AAP.
This was a common option for a first-time offender."It's an appropriate resolution," she said.
