  • NICK PETRINO
Today was the date Razorback football coach Bobby Petrino's son Nick Petrino, 23, a sometime undergraduate assistant coach on the University of Arkansas football team, had been scheduled for trial on a drug possession and DWI charges filed last July in Huntingburg, Ind. I reported on that case in January.

When I checked in with the Indiana court today, I learned that a plea bargain had been struck in the case in February. He entered guilty pleas to two charges and four others were dropped. The guilty pleas:

* Misdemeanor possession of marijuana. Judgment of conviction was withheld and he was given a probationary sentence. Successful completion of probation would allow his record to be cleared.

* Misdemeanor operation of a motor vehicle while intoxicated. He received a 60-day suspended sentence, a year's probation, $441 in fines, costs and fees and 60 days of community service.

Dismissed were these charges: felony possession of a drug similar to oxycodone, possession of drug paraphernalia, operating a vehicle under influence of drugs and endangering someone while driving intoxicated. He was arrested while driving erratically in Indiana, about 75 miles from Louisville, where he went to high school.

Here are the court orders.
