Follow this “Pretzel Logic”: Donald Fagen, the co-founder of Steely Dan, took a plea deal that will see the misdemeanor assault and harassment case brought by his wife dismissed after a year of good behavior.
Fagen, 67, was arrested for shoving his wife, Libby Titus, 69, against a window frame earlier this month in their Manhattan apartment.
According to Assistant District Attorney Jared Kramer, the deal was made after consulting lawyers from both sides.
Technically, the deal is called a “family ACD,” or Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal. The “Reelin’ In the Years” singer must avoid trouble for the next year, because the case is technically open.
A restraining order was issued to help ensure he won’t “Do It Again.”
