Bernie Kosar pleads no contest to reckless operation in DUI case

Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar plead no contest to reckless operation to resolve a driving under the influence case, according to the Associated Press.

He got a fine and a suspended jail sentence.

Kosar was charged with drunk driving last year and declined to perform a field sobriety test, saying knee and ankle surgeries prevented him from doing so.

According to police, though, Kosar has a strong odor of alcohol.

Kosar recently lost his job as an analyst for Browns preseason games.

Kosar blamed the situation on having slurred speech due to head injuries sustained during his NFL career.
