CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — A judge dropped alcohol and probation charges against former Virginia quarterback Peter Lalich, who is now with Oregon State.
Lalich was charged in 2008 with drinking alcohol while on probation for underage alcohol possession. Charlottesville General District Court Judge Robert H. Downer dismissed the charges Tuesday because the 21-year-old Lalich completed a required alcohol program in Oregon.
Lalich was dismissed from UVA’s football team after he admitted in court in September that he had violated the terms of his probation. He transferred to Oregon State and joined the football team at the start of the fall term.
Neither Lalich nor his attorney were present at Tuesday’s hearing.
