Detroit Lions president Tom Lewand has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge after being arrested for allegedly driving drunk last month in northern Michigan. Lewand was placed on probation for six months and fined $532 after pleading guilty to a charge of operating while visibly impaired.

He also will be placed in an outpatiend recovery program and is not allowed to drink alcohol while he’s on probation.

After his arrest, Lewand apologized  saying he’s a person in active recovery and committed to ensure that nothing like this ever happens again.
