Jon Sandusky, son of the infamous Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, has pleaded guilty to refusing a chemical test after being pulled over for suspicion of drunk driving. According to the Associated Press,
Sandusky, 36, received a suspended sentence Tuesday in Fargo Municipal Court and was placed on unsupervised probation that requires him to complete a chemical dependency evaluation, defense attorney Mark Friese said Wednesday.
The sentence should be wiped off Sandusky’s record if he doesn’t break any more laws. The DUI charge was dismissed.
For those of you that didn’t hear about the incident, or would like to know more,
Police say Sandusky, the director of player personnel for the Browns, was pulled over for making an illegal turn in the early morning hours of Oct. 8 near the city’s downtown. Police say he crossed over three lanes of traffic to make the turn.
Officers determined Sandusky was driving under the influence after administering field sobriety tests. Fargo Police Lt. Joel Vettel said Sandusky told officers he was coming from “just down the road,” but officers did not ask for further details.
This is Sandusky’s fourth year as director of player personnel for the Cleveland Browns. Previously, he spent nine seasons with the Eagles in their personnel department as well.
