Green receives 18 months probation.
Former Green Bay Packers star running back Ahman Green has reportedly received 18 months probation and ordered to pay a $500 fine as a result a of a plea agreement that included dismissal of a felony child abuse charge.
According to USA Today, Green was arrested at his home around 11:30 p.m. on June 26 after a report that he had pushed his 15-year old daughter and struck her in the head. She later told investigators the incident had gone on all day and started with an argument over doing the dishes.
Green also admitted to an officer he may have thrown the girl to the ground, tearing her shirt, and that he slapped her head and may have hit her glasses, causing an injury to her eye, the complaint says.
Green, 41, entered an Alford plea of no contest on one count of criminal damage to property and one count of disorderly conduct on Thursday, according to reports. Prosecutors dismissed the charge of child abuse and amended it to a non-abuse charge of damage to property, Green's attorney, Randall Petrouske, said.
"I am happy that the truth has finally won out and my name has been cleared of the terrible crime of child abuse," Green's statement reads. "I have never and would never abuse anyone, including my daughter whom I love, dearly. While I have no doubt in my mind that I would have been successful in front of a jury of my peers in defending myself against all charges, even the two minor charges to which I have entered a no-contest plea, I decided as a father that I did not want to put my daughter, and the rest of my family, through the emotional trauma of a trial. No loving father would do otherwise."
