CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -Carolina Panthers guard Jeremy Bridges was found guilty of pointing a gun at a woman in a parking lot and was given a 60-day suspended jail sentence.
Bridges also was given a year of unsupervised probation, 60 hours of community service and fined $500 in Mecklenburg County District Court . His attorneys say they will appeal the verdict.
Bridges was arrested July 26 - one day before players reported to training camp. Authorities charged him with a misdemeanor assault after a woman accused Bridges of pointing a gun at her in the parking lot of a strip club early that morning.
The Panthers suspended Bridges for the first two regular season games for conduct detrimental to the team. He rejoined the lineup in Week 3.
