Former Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Bill Kenney has pleaded guilty to drunken driving in Missouri’s capital city, where he now serves as a state utility regulator.

The Jefferson City News Tribune reports that Kenney pleaded guilty Wednesday to a misdemeanor driving while intoxicated charge and was placed on two years unsupervised probation.

Jefferson City police say Kenney was discovered passed out and slumped over the steering wheel of his car in a Taco Bell parking lot in March.

The 60-year-old Kenney is a member of the Missouri Public Service Commission.

He was a Chiefs quarterback from 1979 to 1988. He then became a real estate developer in the Kansas City area. Kenney served in the Missouri Senate from 1995 to 2003, representing eastern Jackson County.
