The Dublin District Court has dropped charges against Jonathan Rhys-Meyers after the Tudors star expressed profuse remorse for his public intoxication at Dublin International Airport in November.

The 30-year-old will instead receive a legal caution, warning him of harsher punishment should he act in the same capacity in the country again.

Jonathan, who was not present at the arraignment, was arrested and charged with two counts of public drunkenness and breach of the peace when he was prohibited from boarding a plane to London.

Michael Staines, the actor’s attorney, called his client’s behavior "unacceptable and out of character" and that the star "unreservedly apologizes" to the airport staff and BMI airlines.

A recovering alocholic, the star, whose brush with the law came days before his mother Geri’s death at the age of 50, finished a stint in rehab earlier this year.
