Browns rookie Armonty Bryant pleads no contest to DUI charge

Armonty Bryant pleaded no contest to a DUI charge in Ada, Oklahoma and received a one year deferred sentence.  He must also pay $1,136 in fines and court costs.

The defensive end was a seventh round pick of the Browns in the draft two weekends ago.

Bryant was arrested Friday morning in Ada.  The 22-year old arrested for driving under the influence with refusal, meaning he did not blow  properly into an Intoxylizer. He repeatedly refused to blow properly into the device.

Bryant is no stranger to legal trouble, he was picked up on drug charges last October. He was suspended for three games last season after being arrested for selling $20 of marijuana twice to an undercover officer. Because the infractions came within 2,000 feet of a school, he was charged with a felony.

The new conviction does not impact his probation from the felony drug charge.

The Browns released a statement on the arrest, saying: "We are aware of the incident and are now in the process of collecting more information.  We will not have any further comment.''

The team starts mini-camp on Friday.  It's not known if the Bryant will be in Berea this weekend or if the Browns will cut him before camp opens.
