Allen, 28, was also sentenced to five years of formal probation and 52 weeks of domestic violence counseling, according to Los Angeles Daily News. He was ordered to stay away from the victim, his ex-girlfriend, for a decade. He was facing up to 10 years in jail, according to People.
This all stems from an incident in June 2016, when Allen attacked his ex-girlfriend and chased her to a nearby coffee shop, then assaulted bystanders who tried to help her. Deadline reports Allen vandalized the coffee shop until he was "subdued by other good Samaritans."
Per Deadline, he was previously convicted in January 13, 2016 of "willfully injuring a girlfriend," then attempted to strangle her on April 13 of the same year.
Allen was going to be a mentor on last season of the Fox reality dancing show, but withdrew after the charges were filed.
In a "Where are They Now" update, Fox noted, "When not busy teaching dance, Joshua has been featured in 'Step Up 3-D' and 'Footloose.' He has also appeared on television on 'Community' and 'American Horror Story.'" (He played "Basketball Guy #1" in a 2011 episode of "AHS.")
