From the AP:

The lawyer for Hugh Douglas says the former NFL defensive end will plead no contest to a misdemeanor to resolve a Connecticut case that accused him of assaulting his girlfriend at a Hartford hotel.

The attorney, Corey Brinson, told The Associated Press on Friday that he expects Douglas to plead to breach of peace and avoid a jail sentence Monday in Hartford.

This stemming from allegations that Douglas choked and assaulted a woman at a Hartford hotel. He claimed it was “rough sex.”
