FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) _ A judge sentenced actor Brad Renfro to two years probation and ordered him to pay more than $4,000 for repairs on a yacht he tried to steal.

``I don't have any excuses or fast one-liners to pull out of my shoes,'' Renfro told Broward County Circuit Judge Ronald Rothschild on Thursday.

The star of the 1994 film ``The Client'' agreed to pay the yacht's owner $4,204.55 for loss of use of the vessel and repairs. He also has to pay the Fort Lauderdale Police Department $141.02 for investigative costs, Rothschild said.

Authorities said Renfro, 18, and a friend tried to steal a 45-foot yacht from Holiday Harbor in Fort Lauderdale before dawn on Aug. 28. As they motored away, they forgot to untie all the docking lines, which snagged the $175,000 vessel, damaging its stern.

Two people sleeping on a nearby boat heard the commotion and called police.

Renfro was charged with one count of third-degree grand theft and criminal mischief. The Broward state attorney's office also believed the Knoxville, Tenn., resident was under the influence of drugs at the time.

He had been in Fort Lauderdale to film ``Bully,'' an adaptation of Jim Schutze's 1998 book about the suburban murder of 20-year-old Bobby Kent by a former circle of friends in 1993.

Renfro has also appeared in ``The Cure,'' ``Telling Lies in America'' and ``Sleepers.''

In 1998, he struck a plea bargain on cocaine and marijuana charges, agreeing to be tested for drugs at random times.
