KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Tennessee tailback Arian Foster and two other football players charged with disorderly conduct and underage drinking after an incident at a nightclub reached a plea deal Wednesday.
Foster, safety Antonio Wardlow and fullback David Holbert, each 20, were charged Nov. 5.
Under a deal with prosecutors, the three were given judicial diversion and a public intoxication charge against Wardlow was dismissed.
The players must complete a day of community service, attend an alcohol awareness class at the University of Tennessee and pay court costs. If they stay out of trouble, the convictions can be erased from their records after a year.
Authorities said Holbert and Wardlow were fighting each other outside the Good Fellas nightclub when they were confronted by the police.
Foster said later he was arrested after he tried to calm Wardlow by grabbing him.
The scuffle broke out at 3 a.m. the Sunday after the Volunteers lost to LSU.
Foster was suspended for the first half of last week's game at Arkansas. Holbert was suspended for the entire game and didn't travel with the team. Wardlow was suspended for two games, Arkansas and Vanderbilt.
No. 19 Tennessee hosts Kentucky on Saturday in the Volunteers' regular-season finale.
