Paris Hilton's ex-boyfriend was fined $585 and ordered to stay out of trouble after settling drug charges from a Las Vegas Strip traffic stop.

Cy Waits pleaded no contest to misdemeanor driving under the influence of drugs. After leaving the courtroom Wednesday, he said he's glad to have the case behind him.

The 35-year-old former Las Vegas nightclub manager also said his relationship with Hilton is a closed chapter in his life.

All felony and misdemeanor drug charges against Waits were dropped.

Waits was arrested after a police officer reported a "vapor trail" of marijuana smoke wafting from a black Cadillac Escalade in August 2010.

Hilton was a passenger. She's on probation after pleading guilty last September to misdemeanor cocaine possession and obstruction charges.
