CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -Carolina Panthers receiver Dwayne Jarrett pleads guilty to driving while impaired.
Jarrett appeared in Mecklenburg County District Court on Monday. He surrendered his driver's license and was ordered to pay $420 in court costs and to perform 24 hours of community service.
Jarrett will enter the first stage of the NFL's substance abuse program, meaning he will be subject to more frequent tests for drugs and alcohol.
The 21-year-old Jarrett was arrested March 11 in the Charlotte suburb of Mint Hill after police say he crossed the center line and ran a red light near Charlotte. The police report said Jarrett's blood-alcohol level was .12, above North Carolina's legal limit of .08.
