Ex-Aggie player Isaiah Golden released from prison

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) A former Texas A&M player has been released from prison on probation after serving three months of a 10-year sentence for robbery.

The (Bryan-College Station) Eagle (http://bit.ly/2b0gfgf) reports ex-defensive lineman Isaiah Golden of Carthage received probation Tuesday. Under an agreement for his guilty plea for robbery, Golden had his sentence re-evaluated by state District Judge Travis Bryan III to determine if probation was a more appropriate sentence than prison.

Golden must still pay a $1,500 fine and testify against another ex-A&M player, linebacker Darian Claiborne, who like Golden was arrested in 2014 and dismissed from the team. Court documents indicate Golden and Claiborne were accused of robbing three men at gunpoint during an alleged drug deal.
