Washington State junior linebacker Logan Tago accepted a plea bargain after being charged with second-degree felony robbery and fourth-degree misdemeanor assault over the summer.

According to Stefanie Loh of the Seattle Times, the misdemeanor assault charge was dismissed and the second-degree felony robbery was dropped to a third-degree assault.

The incident occurred on June 4, 2016 when police say Tago took a Pullman man’s six-pack of beer and hit the victim in the head. The victim reported that he has suffered a concussion in the assault.

As a result of the plea deal, Tago will serve 30 days in the Whitman County Jail, perform 240 hours of community service, and pay $800 in fines. Third-degree assault carries up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Tago has been suspended from WSU athletics indefinitely.

In seven games for the Cougars in 2016, Tago recorded 12 tackles. He was suspended for five games before coming back in the Apple Cup after the Student Conduct Board lifted his suspension from school in mid-November.
