An Iowa judge has found Washington Redskins guard Chad Rinehart guilty of public intoxication after a January encounter with University of Northern Iowa police.

The 25-year-old Rinehart, a native of Boone, Iowa, paid $195 in fines and fees after Black Hawk County Magistrate Patricia Meany issued her written ruling June 3.

Campus police spokesman Dave Zariffs says officers responded to a door alarm at a pizzeria in Cedar Falls on Jan. 18 and found Rinehart pulling on a locked door. A police report says Rinehart, who played at Northern Iowa from 2004-07, appeared to be intoxicated. He refused a breath test and was arrested.

Rinehart made four starts for the Redskins last season before breaking his right leg.
