HOUSTON (AP) - Houston Texans wide receiver Jacoby Jones has
pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated over a 2008 traffic incident.
A judge in Houston on Tuesday ordered Jones to spend one year in a new diversion program for first-time DWI offenders.
Jones must attend alcohol education classes in the yearlong program that includes placing an alcohol detecting device in his vehicle. Completion of the program could lead to dismissal of the case.
Jones was in his car but stopped in a downtown Houston traffic lane when he was arrested on March 16, 2008.
Jones says he made a mistake and learned from it.
