DeJuan Tribble To Serve One Year Probation

Rookies Gosder Cherilus and DeJuan Tribble got served their sentence today for their involvement with a scuffle at a Boston area bar. Tribble and a bunch of his Boston College teammates were out celebrating Cherilus' birthday when a bit of an altercation broke out. Details are a bit sketchy, but apparently Cherilus grabbed a bar patron who was arguing with an off-duty Massachusetts State Police officer and dragged him across the room. Tribble and Cherilus then proceeded to punch and kick the guy, a one Mr. Sean Maney. "I thought I was going to die up there that night"
Two former Boston College football players yesterday were ordered to serve one year of pretrial probation for their roles in a bar brawl near North Station in which a patron was seriously injured.

One of the players, Gosder Cherilus, also was ordered to pay the victim $52,000 toward his medical bills.

Cherilus and DeJuan Tribble, both 23, were BC stars when they intervened in a confrontation at The Greatest Bar last July between a customer, Sean Maney, and an off-duty Massachusetts State Police sergeant, Joseph J. Boike, a part owner of the nightspot. Maney suffered a broken neck and other injuries.

Boston Municipal Court Judge Paul K. Leary ordered Cherilus and Tribble, both of whom were selected in April's NFL draft, to stay away from Maney and ruled that the charges against them would be dismissed if they abide by the court order and stay out of trouble for a year. Each was charged with one count of assault and battery and one count of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (a shod foot).

Tribble gets off with just a year's probation, but Cherilus has to fork up the cash for the medical bills. The lesson learned? Don't try to intervene between two guys about to fight in a bar. Next thing you know, you're taking an accidental elbow to the jaw and all hell breaks out.
