New England Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge in Cincinnati hours after playing in the Super Bowl.

A Hamilton County court bailiff says the former Cincinnati Bengal pleaded guilty Monday to a charge of failure to display a valid driver's license during a July 21 traffic stop.

Court documents show Ochocinco, who's listed under his former name Chad Johnson, was originally charged with driving with a suspended license and a window tint violation. The documents also state that his out- of-state driver's license was suspended. The bailiff says he has a valid license now.

The judge fined Ochocinco $200 and ordered him to pay $104 in court costs.

His attorney says the court ''record speaks for itself'' and declined to comment further.
