(Bedford) - Bernie Kosar has struck a plea deal in his OVI case. The former Browns quarterback pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of reckless operation.
Charges of OVI and speeding were dismissed. Kosar was fined $1069 and given a suspended 10 day jail sentence.
Kosar had been arrested last September in Solon allegedly doing 74 in a 50 MPH zone.
The arresting officer said Kosar, appeared to be intoxicated and said he couldn't take a field sobriety test because of football injuries.
Bernie says his concussion related speech impediment was mistaken for slurred speech.
