Bears lineman Louis pleads guilty to misdemeanor battery

Bears offensive lineman Lance Louis pled guilty Friday to misdemeanor battery, nearly a year and a half after an incident involving his then-teammate at San Diego State, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The outcome sounded like a relief for Louis’ lawyer.  The second-year player avoided more serious charges of felony assault.

The incident stemmed from a fight Louis had with former Aztec teammate Nick Sandford.  Louis was accusing of striking and kicking Sanford, causing a concussion, a ruptured eardrum, and facial injuries. 

Louis was sentenced to 40 hours of community service, anger management
classes, informal probation and a $565 fine.

    Bears are not that competitive in the NFL, but maybe they’re going for a MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) team….
    Seriously, if you’re going to beat up teammates, I really think Cutler could use a good thrashing…..

    informal probation is non-reporting probation—as long as you stay out of trouble you are fine, but if you get in trouble those old charges come back. In PA you get informal or non-reporting probation for your first DUI, among other offenses
