Former Vol DB gets probation following bar brawl

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Former UT Vol defensive back Darren Myles reached a plea deal Thursday on charges stemming from a July fracas at Bar Knoxville on the Cumberland Avenue Strip and another brush with trouble in April at Sobu in West Knoxville, Volunteer TV Photojournalist Keith Smith reports from the courthouse.

Charges of disorderly conduct and assault on an officer were dismissed, and Myles pleaded guilty to evading arrest and public intoxication in both incidences.

He was sentenced to two years probation, which the judge says will be counted from just after the April incident, which means he'll have about a year and nine months of probation left. If Myles stays out of trouble, the charges will be wiped from his criminal record.
