Corey Dillon Pleads No Contest To Misdemeanor Reckless Driving

Last year, mid-April of 2010, former Bengals running back Corey Dillon was arrested for driving while intoxicated in Los Angeles, near Malibu on Mulholland Drive. Dillon was initially charged with two misdemeanors, driving under the influence of alcohol with a blood-alcohol level of .08% or more, after deputies said he displayed signs of intoxication. Dillon also admitted to drinking earlier that evening. Around the same time, Dillon was facing a divorce with his wife and arrested of allegedly assaulting her during an argument. The charges were later dropped.

On Friday, Dillon pled no contest, receiving two years of probation, a 12-hour alcohol program and ordered to pay a $250 fine, on charges that were reduced from two misdemeanor DUI charges to a misdemeanor reckless driving charge.

Dillon is the all-time rushing leader in franchise history, posting 8,061 yards rushing in seven seasons with the Bengals. Dillon also holds the franchise for longest rushing touchdown -- 96 yards against the Detroit Lions on October 28, 2001 -- most 100 yards games (28), career rushing attempts (1,865) and the top three performances in a game. His 246 yards rushing against the Titans in 1997 was a rushing rookie record and his 278 yards rushing against Denver in 2000 set NFL records. Both have been broken since.
