STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Former Oklahoma State football player Tyreek Hill has pleaded guilty to domestic assault and battery by strangulation.

Hill, an All-Big 12 all-purpose player last season, entered the guilty plea Friday in a Payne County courtroom. He will be on probation until August 2018 and won’t have additional penalties unless he violates conditions of his probation, including completion of an anger management course, a yearlong program for batterers and payment of a $500 fine.

Hill gained 1,811 all-purpose yards last season. His 92-yard punt return for a touchdown made him the hero of Oklahoma State’s comeback victory over Oklahoma. But less than a week later, he was dismissed from the football and track teams after being arrested and charged with punching and choking his pregnant girlfriend.
