Colorado Player Gets Probation, Community Service For Off-Campus Fight

By  | 

A Colorado tight end who pleaded guilty in an off-campus brawl has been sentenced to two years' probation and 50 hours of community service.

Boulder County District Judge Maria Berkenkotter sentenced Riar Greer on Monday. The 21-year-old Greer avoided a jail term of up to two years.

He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor third-degree assault stemming from a March 14 fight. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to drop charges of felony second-degree assault and misdemeanor harassment.

The university Office of Judicial Affairs ordered Greer to serve 50 hours of community service, in addition to his court-ordered sentence. Greer was suspended from the team for the spring semester but will be allowed to play this fall.
