Ex-NFL player pleads no contest to misdemeanor
Friday, July 15, 2011
MALIBU, Calif. (AP) -- Prosecutors say former NFL running back Corey Dillon has pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor reckless driving charge in Malibu.
Los Angeles County district attorney's office spokeswoman Jane Robison says Dillon was sentenced Friday to two years of probation, a 12-hour alcohol program and ordered to pay a $250 fine.
Robison says Dillon entered the plea through his attorney with an admission that alcohol was involved.
The former Cincinnati Bengals and New England Patriots running back was arrested last year in Calabasas in northwestern Los Angeles County on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.
He initially was charged with two misdemeanor DUI counts stemming from that arrest.
