All charges stemming from D’Onta Foreman‘s 2017 arrest have been dismissed, reports Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle (via Twitter). The Texans rookie running back was arrested last July in Austin and was facing marijuana and gun charges.
Foreman ultimately pleaded no contest to “misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct for making unreasonable noise,” tweets Wilson. These charges will be dismissed if the player avoids legal issues for 90 days. Foreman was also required to pay a $500 fine and turn in the gun that was found in his car.
“Everybody’s happy,” attorney Chip Lewis said. “They dismissed the cases and let him plea to the disorderly conduct charge. D’Onta is relieved. He’s learned a great deal from this. You have to be very cognizant of what you do and who you do with it.”
According to the attorney, the NFL told Foreman and his agent that he wouldn’t face any disciplinary action if the charges were dismissed (Twitter link).
The former Texas star was selected in the third round of the 2017 draft, and he proceeded to play in 10 games (including one start). Serving as Lamar Miller‘s backup, Foreman ultimately ran for 327 yards and two touchdowns on 78 carries. The rookie’s season ended prematurely after he suffered a torn Achilles in mid-November.
