NORWICH, Conn. (AP) -Former New England Patriots player Tebucky Jones was granted probation on charges stemming from a fight at a Connecticut casino.
The 34-year-old safety appeared in Norwich Superior Court on Friday. Jones also played for New Orleans and Miami and was released by the Patriots in February 2007.
Police said he had ``inappropriate contact'' with a woman in the Mohegan Sun casino lobby, then punched her boyfriend. Jones was charged in August with assault, breach of peace and fourth-degree sexual assault.
Prosecutors dropped the sexual assault charge Friday. If Jones completes one year of probation, the other two charges will be dropped.
