NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Vanderbilt assistant coach Vavae Tata has pleaded guilty to a charge of drunk driving with a plea agreement dismissing a count of leaving the scene of an accident.
Tata entered the plea Wednesday for an incident Jan. 24 that resulted in Vanderbilt suspending the new defensive line coach.
The agreement includes Tata losing his license for a year and serving 48 hours in jail with the rest of the 11-month, 29-day sentence suspended.
His attorney Roger May told The Tennessean that Tata was very embarrassed and wanted to apologize to Vanderbilt.
Police said Tata, 37, recorded a 0.18 percent blood alcohol content on a Breathalyzer test, above the state limit of 0.08 when police found him a few blocks away from a vehicle that had crashed into two parked vehicles.
