Former Colts star Robert Mathis cut a deal to close a case stemming from a 2017 operating a vehicle while intoxicated arrest. Part of the deal is he has to stay away from bars and booze for 365 days.
Via TMZ Sports:
Mathis’ blood alcohol level was actually below the legal limit at .052 — but he admitted he did take a sleeping pill in addition to the booze … so officials hit him with the OWI (operating a vehicle while intoxicated) charge anyway.
Mathis fought it in court the past year and a half … but finally cut a deal with prosecutors Tuesday to close the case.
According to court docs, Mathis pled guilty to 1 misdemeanor count of OWI — and in exchange got 1 year of probation and 60 days in jail … with credit for 2 days served and the rest of the sentence suspended.
Translation — if Mathis abides by the terms of his probation, he won’t have to serve the remaining 58 days. But, if he screws up, he could be thrown behind bars.
Some would say this isn’t a deal at all and would much rather spend the remaining 58 days in jail. We’ll see if Mathis makes it the full year or opts to serve the time.
