Denver Broncos safety T.J. Ward agreed to a deal that will require him to perform four hours of community service before Oct. 31, reports the Denver Post. In exchange for the community service, Denver prosecutors will drop misdemeanor charges stemming from a strip club incident in May.
In that altercation Ward was accused of throwing a glass mug at a bartender at PT's All Nude, a Denver strip club, after she told him that he could not bring in outside drinks, the Post reported. The incident was caught on video.
Denver prosecutors offered Ward the deal because he had no previous criminal record, a spokeswoman said.
Ward signed with the Broncos in March after spending the first four seasons of his pro career with the Cleveland Browns. Last season the 27-year-old safety recorded 75 tackles, two interceptions and one and a half sacks, and made his first career Pro Bowl.
