QUICK TAKES

Groping charges against Christian Slater will be dropped if the actor stays out of trouble for the next six months, under a plea agreement reached with prosecutors.

"The case is dismissed, and we are very pleased with the outcome," his lawyer, Eric Franz, said Monday outside Manhattan Criminal Court.

In July, the actor had rejected a plea bargain that would have required him to perform three days of community service in exchange for pleading guilty to second-degree harassment.

Slater, 36, was arrested May 31 and charged with forcible touching for allegedly groping a woman during a late-night run-in on the Upper East Side. He faced up to a year in jail if convicted.
