 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 drew a year of unsupervised probation, 60 hours of community service and a fine of $500. His lawyers said they will appeal the verdict.
``It was kind of shocking,'' Bridges said after the hearing in Mecklenburg County District Court. ``I know I'm not guilty in the whole situation.''
The Panthers suspended Bridges for the first two regular-season games for conduct detrimental to the team and rejoined the lineup in the third week. He could face additional penalties from the league.
``At the league level, personal conduct policy also applies, and we have been informed that the NFL will review this matter,'' Panthers general manager Marty Hurney said.
During the hearing, Chevella Coleman, an entertainer at a Charlotte strip club, testified that she got into an altercation outside the club with Bridges' friend, Darrell Bennett. Bridges, who wasn't in the club that night, said he retrieved a gun from an SUV to prevent the tension from escalating.
Both sides agreed Bridges intervened. Bridges testified that he held the gun behind his back and never pointed it at anyone. He said he was trying to defuse a potentially dangerous situation.
Former Panther wide receiver Taye Biddle, who now plays for Tampa Bay, was present that night and testified on behalf of Bridges.
