Myers later pleaded guilty to vehicular assault.

Along with time in jail, Myers was ordered to pay a $2,500 fine, perform 50 hours of community service and continue with alcohol counseling.

Myers’ driver’s license was revoked for one year, and after he is released, he will spend five years on probation.
