Tom Hanks Gets Out Of Jury Duty Amidst Allegations Of Jury Tampering!

The trial in which Tom Hanks was a member of the jury came to an end today, way before Sheriff Woody could do his civic duty!

During a lunch break yesterday, Tom was approached by a lady on the L.A. City Attorney's Office who wanted to applaud his service for saving private Ryan doing his part on the jury, even as a celebrity!

When the court reconvened today, the prosecutor 'fessed up that a member of the City Attorney's Office had made inappropriate conduct by getting too extremely loud & incredibly close with Tommy boy!

Maybe the inappropriate conduct wasn't as bad as the time that lady toy store executive was hitting on Tom's 12-year old character in Big, but still, crossing a line!

The defense wanted a hearing to prove prosecutorial misconduct, then both sides started talking, and a plea deal was struck. Ugh, which means they potentially cut Tom's line "we find the defendant guilty/not guilty!"

Instead, the defendant pleaded no contest to the minor infraction of disturbing the peace. He had originally faced a year in jail for domestic violence, and now he only has to pay $150 dollar fine.

We bet Tom deep down felt like he was stuck on a desert island/airport/France in WWII, and now he gets to go home to Wilson! Ew, Rita Wilson, not the volleyball!
