FRESNO, Calif. (AP) -- Former NFL player Lorenzo Neal has been sentenced to three years of probation after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor drunken driving charge.
The four-time Pro Bowl fullback also was sentenced Monday to eight days in an adult offender work program and ordered to pay $1,861 in fines and court fees.
Authorities say the former Fresno State University football player was charged in a July 4th crash in which his pickup truck hit a pole north of Clovis.
The Fresno Bee (http://bit.ly/IoTfRt ) reports Neal is listed as chief information officer for a company called Safe Ride Solutions, which offers confidential rides for intoxicated drivers.
According to the company's website, "Lorenzo feels drinking and driving is a major problem and effects people from all walks of life and all segments of society."
