Ex-Panthers cheerleader gets six months' probation

TAMPA, Fla. -- A former Carolina Panthers cheerleader got
six months' probation for her role in a bathroom brawl sparked by
accusations that she was having sex with another cheerleader.

Angela Keathley, 26, pleaded guilty Wednesday to disorderly
conduct and obstructing a police officer during the Nov. 6 fight,
which broke out when women in line to use the bathroom made the
allegations about Keathley and fellow cheerleader Victoria Renee
Thomas.

Thomas, 20, denied the sex allegation. She has pleaded not
guilty to giving a false name to a police officer, battery and
unlawful display of a license.

The Panthers fired the pair for violating a signed code that
bans conduct embarrassing to the Panthers.
