BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — A judge said Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly has met his court-ordered community service requirement imposed after a fight with bouncers outside a Buffalo nightclub
A Buffalo City Court judge on Monday accepted Kelly’s work tending to a community college athletic field at Eastern Mississippi Community College as part of the January plea agreement that had him admit to disorderly conduct in exchange for 50 hours of community service.
The deal let Kelly avoid more serious charges of resisting arrest and menacing.
The nephew of NFL Hall of Famer Jim Kelly was arrested Dec. 21, days after signing with Ole Miss.
Chad Kelly’s attorney, Thomas Eoannou, said Kelly is participating in a humanitarian relief mission in Haiti led by Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze.
Kelly is one of three players vying to become starting quarterback for Ole Miss.
