Nearly two months after being arrested for drunk driving, Iowa safety Brandon Snyder formally pleaded guilty to the charge, according to TV station KCRG in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

As a result of the plea, Snyder will avoid jail time if he participates in a weekend program at a community college. He will also be fined $1,250.

Snyder was arrested after failing a breathalyzer test with a reading that was more than twice the legal limit in Iowa.

Snyder was a starter at free safety throughout his sophomore season in 2016, but he tore his ACL in his left knee during spring practice a year ago and had surgery in April.

He returned to play in the Oct. 7 game against Illinois, a game the Hawkeyes won 45-16. However, he suffered another torn ACL in that game that sidelined him for the rest of the season.

Snyder was expected to be ready to return to the field in June.
