TRUMAINE JOHNSON
MISSOULA, Mont. -

Former University of Montana and current St. Louis Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson pleaded guilty to Reckless Driving and Unlawful Breath Test Refusal.

Police arrested Johnson in March for an alleged DUI citation.

In Missoula Municipal Court Wednesday, Johnson pleaded guilty, via telephone from St. Louis, to the amended offenses of Reckless Driving and Unlawful Breath Test Refusal as part of a plea agreement with the City Attorney's Office.

Johnson will pay over $900 in fines and have to enroll in the ACT program, a 12-hour  alcohol assessment program. His attorney Raul Ryan told NBC Montana Johnson can complete that program from St. Louis.

Johnson will also contribute $2,500 to the Missoula County DUI Task Force.
