 KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Tennessee punter Britton Colquitt will spend 24 hours picking up litter and lose his license for a year after he pleaded guilty Monday to drunken driving.
Colquitt, 23, was charged Feb. 17 with DUI and leaving the scene of an accident. He also received a suspended sentence of 11 months, 29 days, a $350 fine and court costs, a 24-hour detention in jail and must attend DUI school.
After Colquitt's arrest, Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer suspended the second-team All-SEC punter for the first five games of his senior season and revoked his scholarship.
Officers who stopped Colquitt said he admitted to drinking and driving as well as hitting a parked car and a tree stump, causing more than $400 in damage.
Colquitt was also suspended from the team as an incoming freshman in 2003 after a series of alcohol-related incidents.
He told The Knoxville News Sentinel he's trying to learn from his mistakes and wanted to complete his punishment as quickly as possible.
