Former Denver Broncos punter Todd Sauerbrun has pleaded guilty to disturbing the peace, and a charge of assault has been dropped against him.
Sauerbrun was expected to stand trial starting today on charges of assault and disturbing the peace stemming from a confrontation with a taxi driver.
The trial was originally scheduled for April 29, but was delayed.
Sauerbrun was cited and taken to a detox facility after an argument outside a Denver restaurant in December. He has said the allegations are false and called the incident "completely overblown."
Sauerbrun had signed a one-year, $1.4 million contract for the 2007 season, his second stint with the Broncos.
The Broncos released the 38-year-old Sauerbrun shortly after the altercation.
