Felony charge deferred based on behavior

DENVER -- Nuggets forward Rodney White pleaded guilty to two
weapons charges and agreed to 100 hours of community service to get
a third charge dropped.

White pleaded guilty Tuesday in Washington, D.C., to charges of
possessing an unregistered firearm and unregistered ammunition.

Prosecutors agreed to dismiss a charge of carrying a pistol
without a license if White completes his community service in
Washington by Sept. 6.

White would face no further jail time.

He spent two weeks in jail after he and two other men were
arrested in Washington on Sept. 5 for allegedly shooting randomly
into the air.

"This has been a tough time for me, my team and my family,"
White said in a statement. "I sincerely apologize for what I have
done and look forward to having this matter placed behind me."
