Former NFL running back Ahman Green was found guilty of disorderly conduct and criminal damage to property after entering a plea in court on Thursday in Wisconsin, and was sentenced to 18 months on probation.
Green entered an Alford plea, similar to a no-contest plea in an effort to avoid a trial while maintaining his innocence.
The original incident took place on June 26, 2017, when Green was accused of pushing his then 15-year-old daughter and hitting her in the head when she refused to wash the dishes.
Green said that “parental discipline” was the reason behind the altercation. A criminal complaint said his daughter told police that she had been fighting with her father all day before the assault.
It also said that Green told police that “he might have thrown the girl to the ground, tearing her shirt, and that he slapped her head and may have hit her glasses, causing an injury to her eye,” the Green Bay Press Gazette reported. SMH.
