JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) New York Giants backup quarterback Kyle Lauletta has pleaded guilty to a disorderly person offense and two traffic offenses after failing to obey an officer's orders while driving near a construction site in October.
Lauletta pleaded guilty Tuesday. The plea deal calls for dropping charges if Lauletta stays out of trouble for the next year.
Weehawken police say Lauletta was driving his 2017 Jaguar Oct. 30 when he was stopped for failing to obey an officer's order to continue driving straight.
Police says Lauletta almost hit an officer while making an illegal turn. He was stopped by a second officer and refused to produce a driver's license or exit the car.
He was later arrested. Lauletta has said he's apologetic about the incident.
