July 31, 2014
ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) -A former Ohio State University football player has pleaded no contest to a lesser charge in a felony drug case against him.
The (Elyria) Chronicle-Telegram http://bit.ly/1nOu7HJ reports that Tracy Sprinkle pleaded Thursday to attempted failure to comply, a misdemeanor. He received a $500 fine, 30-day suspended jail sentence and two years' probation.
Sprinkle was charged after a brawl outside a bar in Lorain on July 4. He also was charged with drug paraphernalia, rioting and failure to disperse. Police say officers found cocaine in the back seat of the squad car that took Sprinkle to jail.
The redshirt freshman was suspended from the team.
Defense attorney Michael Duff says Sprinkle wants to keep playing at Ohio State and the plea was a good way to put the case behind hm.
