A linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens who was arrested in Savage in December and accused of driving drunk will not spend any time behind bars.
Sergio Kindle was sentenced to two years of unsupervised probation on Tuesday, according to the Howard County Times.
Kindle had pleaded guilty and was facing a five-day jail sentence that is mandatory for people convicted twice on charges of driving under the influence, the article said.
But Judge Neil Edward Axel said he was satisfied with the five days in which Kindle had been in an inpatient treatment facility, according to the Times.
Kindle, 23, was arrested early in the morning on Dec. 26. He was driving northbound on Route 1 at about 4:09 a.m. and was at the intersection with Route 32 when he was pulled over, according to online court records.
Kindle's vehicle—a 2004 Cadillac with Texas license plates—was seen weaving on the road, a Howard County police spokeswoman told The Baltimore Sun in December.
Kindle was accused of driving under the influence of alcohol, driving while impaired by alcohol, failing to obey a traffic control device and speeding. He was allegedly driving 70 mph in a 55 mph zone, according to online court records. His blood alcohol level was .17, according to the Times.
The rookie linebacker did not play for the team this past season due to injury.
