Reality TV star Mike Shouhed from “Shahs of Sunset” managed to get out of a number of charges surrounding his domestic violence case by copping a very generous plea deal.

Shouhed was charged after allegedly being roughing up his fiancée, Paulina Ben-Cohen, in March, TMZ reported Monday. Shouhed faced a slew of charges including domestic violence, battery and unlawfully attempting to dissuade a witness, all of which have been dropped in favor of a plea deal.

In exchange for wiping those charges clean, Shouhed has agreed to enroll in a gun safety course, anger management classes, parenting classes, and will have to provide community service. He is mandated to attend a 2-year diversion program, according to TMZ.

The reality television star also faced a number of weapons charges including storage of a loaded firearm and possession of an assault weapon, according to TMZ. He is not permitted to own or possess any weapons while he’s enrolled in the program.

Mike’s attorney, George Mgdesyan, insists his client would not be proven guilty in court.

“In this case, the DA didn’t bring this case because they saw the facts like I did. If this case was brought to trial, the prosecution would not be able to prove it,” Mgdesyan told TMZ. (RELATED: Cardi B Pleads Guilty To Strip Club Assault Charges)

“All my client’s guns were legal, in his bedroom that was locked with a keypad. No one was allowed in the master bedroom,” Mgdesyan told the outlet.

Shouhed has not released a public statement regarding this matter.

He is scheduled to appear in court in January for a progress report, according to TMZ.
