Boise State Broncos quarterback Ryan Finley pleaded guilty to a pair of misdemeanor charges yesterday, per Chadd Cripps of the Idaho Statesman. The charges stemmed from an incident in the spring, when Finley was arrested for underage possession of alcohol and “resisting or obstructing” officers.
As a result, Finley will serve three months’ probation and pay a fine. He has already completed 40 hours of community service.
During the summer, Broncos coach Bryan Harsin addressed Finley’s arrest with little worry.
“I know the story,” Harsin told the Idaho Statesman. “That’s the one thing about my position – you’ve got to make difficult decisions based off the information you’ve got, based on the person, the player, and how you feel about it. Is it perfect either way? No, it’s not. And we’ve gone the other way, but I feel like what I’ve asked and what he’s done, he’s done it.”
Finley was named the team’s starting quarterback but is now out for a few more weeks due to an ankle injury. Boise State will look to go 4-1 when the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors visit Albertsons Stadium this Saturday. Kickoff is slated for 10:15 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
