DENVER (AP) - Prosecutors have agreed to drop charges against Denver Broncos safety T.J. Ward in exchange for community service.
A judge accepted the deal on Monday during a brief hearing in Denver.
Ward previously pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor assault and disturbing the peace charges for allegedly throwing a glass mug at a female bartender at PT's All Nude Club in May.
Ward told the judge he understood the conditions of the program but said nothing else.
A judge will review the status of the case on Oct. 31.
The deal comes as the Broncos get ready for their preseason opener Thursday night against Seattle.
