Packer Player Avoids Trial On Domestic Violence Charge

Green Bay Packers running back Ahman Green has agreed to counseling and community service to avoid a trial on a domestic violence charge.

If Green complies with the terms of the agreement, the case against him would be dismissed if he stays out of trouble. He's agreed to anger management counseling and 100 hours of community service.

Green was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct after an argument with his wife last April at their Ledgeview home.

Green's attorneys say the continuance agreement was signed by both Green and prosecutors Wednesday, but a Brown County judge must also approve the arrangement. That could take 60 days.

Defense attorneys Bob Janssen, Marc Hammer and Jackson Main say Green will likely avoid possible N-F-L penalties if he completes the agreement because he has not entered a plea or plea bargain to the charges. They say Green is expected to be on the plane when the Packers depart for Tennessee.

Green's wife, Heather, supported any agreement that would keep the charge off the court record of her estranged husband.
