PHOENIX – Former Philadelphia Eagles safety Keelan Johnson has been sentenced to two months of supervised probation for pushing a police officer in suburban Phoenix last year.
Maricopa County prosecutors say the 25-year-old Johnson, who played 49 games for Arizona State, was sentenced Wednesday. He pleaded guilty last month to aggravated assault.
The officer was investigating a fight between a bouncer and an acquaintance of Johnson's at a bar last July in Tempe, home to Arizona State.
Johnson had previously pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated assault on an officer and resisting arrest and had been facing trial.
The Miami Dolphins signed Johnson as an undrafted free agent in April 2013 but waived him that fall. He signed with the Eagles in September 2013 and was released in August 2014.
