Browns defensive end Armonty Bryant pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence and received a one-year deferred sentence today in Pontotoc County District Court in Ada, Okla., according to the court clerk’s office. Bryant owes $1,136 in fines and court costs, and he has set up payment arrangements. He also must listen to a victim impact panel and attend a substance abuse evaluation within 180 days. Bryant and his attorney, Frank Stout, appeared before Special Judge Steven Kessinger this afternoon. Bryant was arrested at 3:46 a.m. Friday in Ada and charged with DUI. Bryant repeatedly refused to properly blow into a Breathalyzer before the test eventually yielded a result of 0.098, according to the police report. Oklahoma’s legal limit for intoxication is 0.08. Bryant, 22, also repeatedly refused to adequately blow into an Intoxilyzer, though two deficient samples read 0.10 and 0.09, according to the report. He also verbally declined the state’s blood test.
