GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Suspended Florida guard Ronnie Wilson pleaded no contest to battery and discharging a firearm.
He received two years of court-supervised probation during his plea agreement Thursday, and must forfeit his firearm and perform 100 hours of community service.
Wilson also must speak at an upcoming anti-violence rally and have a mental health evaluation. Adjudication of guilt was withheld.
Coach Urban Meyer suspended Wilson for a year following his arrest. The sophomore from Pompano Beach, a projected starter this fall, could face further disciplinary action from the university.
Wilson is no longer enrolled at Florida, and his future with the team remains uncertain.
Wilson was arrested April 5 on charges of aggravated assault, simple battery and use or display of a concealed weapon during the commission of a felony. The felony charges against Wilson were later dropped.
Police accused Wilson of shooting a semiautomatic rifle after a dispute with another man. Wilson later told police he took the rifle out of his trunk and fired one shot into the air because he wanted the other man ``to know how it felt to be scared,'' according to a Gainesville Police Department arrest report.
Wilson has since formally apologized to the victim and his family.
