Warren Sapp pleads guilty to domestic violence suit.

On Oct. 1, the former NFL’er pleaded guilty to one count of domestic violence in Las Vegas, according to TMZ. As you may recall, Sapp originally was charged with three counts, but prosecutors dropped two of them in exchange for Thursday’s plea deal.

In April, Sapp was accused of assaulting his girlfriend, Chalyce Moore, at the M Resort in Las Vegas. According to authorities, the former defensive lineman threw a margarita in Moore’s face and followed her into a resort lobby, where he was seen on surveillance recordings pulling on her arm and knocking her off her feet. Police say, however, the altercation didn’t stop there but continued on the drive back to Moore’s home when Sapp bit her left middle finger so hard that it began to bleed and swell.

Moore told police that the 42-year-old began to pack his things as soon as they reached her residence, but that the fight continued. She “ended up on the floor but did not know how.” Per Sapp’s plea deal, he must pay $2,895 in fines and restitution and complete 48 hours of community service. He will also have to undergo domestic violence counseling for six months, and stay out of trouble with the law for six months. The court has also banned him from contact with Moore.

Let’s just hope Sapp can honor the agreement and stay out of jail.
