Oregon kicker pleads guilty to harassment
Oregon kicker Rob Beard has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor
charge of physical harassment in a Jan. 24 street fight that left
him seriously injured.
The Register-Guard reported that prosecutors on Friday said the
19-year-old Beard was so drunk that he doesn’t remember shoving a
woman to the ground before he was beaten unconscious by two men who
intervened on the woman’s behalf.
Lane County Circuit Court Judge Maurice Merten sentenced Beard
to one year of probation and 100 hours of community service.
The two other men, 19-year-old Kirby Hawkins and 20-year-old
Maurice Peterson, each pleaded guilty Friday to misdemeanor assault
and were sentenced to 18 months probation.
