Troubled NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown, formerly of the Steelers, Raiders and Patriots, reportedly pleaded no contest on Friday to a felony battery charge from a January incident involving a moving truck driver.

According to Carli Teproff of The Miami Herald, Brown was sentenced to two years of probation, and must also attend a 13-week anger management program and undergo a psychological exam, in order to fulfill the terms of a plea deal. ESPN's Cameron Wolfe added that the deal also includes 100 hours of community of service.

Brown turned himself into authorities in late-January after an alleged altercation with the driver of a moving truck that was carrying some of Brown's possessions. A dispute erupted over fees added on top of the initial $4,000 delivery, and Brown allegedly threw a rock at the moving vehicle and aggressively confronted the driver in the cabin. Brown's personal athletic trainer was also charged for tussling with the driver.

The judge presiding over the case did not issue adjudication, meaning Brown would not be convicted of a crime, the story said.

It was unclear whether Brown would face further punishment from the league under its personal conduct policy if he were to sign with a team.
