HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) -Southern Miss running back Damion Fletcher, a former Conference USA offensive player of the year, has been sentenced to six months probation after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge.
Hattiesburg city prosecutor Sally O'Flynn says Fletcher pleaded guilty Thursday to firing a handgun within city limits. If he completes probation and 40 hours of community service, his record can be wiped clean.
A call to Fletcher's defense attorney was not immediately returned.
Fletcher, who holds the school record for rushing yards, was arrested Feb. 15 after firing a handgun outside the apartments where many athletes live. He initially pleaded not guilty.
Coach Larry Fedora said Fletcher is not participating in spring practice.
