This is an update to an earlier post about Taran Noah Smith.  TMZ reports that:

Former “Home Improvement” star Taran Noah Smith has just been convicted of DUI and hash possession following his arrest earlier this year, TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story … Smith was popped in L.A. back in February when cops saw him behind the wheel of a Honda Accord, which was parked in front of a fire hydrant. When they approached the vehicle, cops say they detected the smell of cannabis, and placed Smith under arrest.

Smith was charged with DUI and possession of hash — and today, he pled “guilty” to the drug possession charge. He pled “no contest” to the DUI charge.

Smith was sentenced to a 12-hour program for the DUI offense, and a 6-month drug diversion program for the weed charge

Smith was also placed on three years probation.

He’s due back in court in June.
