Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey pleaded no contest on Monday to a misdemeanor DUI charge that resulted from an arrest in April, the Contra Costa Times reported.
Heyward-Bey was stopped by police around 2 a.m. on April 7 while returning from a nightclub, his attorney, Ivan Golde, told the newspaper. The California Highway Patrol said a chemical test administered at the scene indicated his blood-alcohol level was .13 percent.
Heyward-Bey, 25, agreed to plead no contest to the misdemeanor charge in exchange for three years' probation and three months of DUI classes. He also will pay fines.
Heyward-Bey had 64 receptions for 975 yards in 2011.
