South Bend, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Last year's starting quarterback at Notre Dame pleaded guilty Monday to two misdemeanors related to an off-campus party in May.

The judge ordered 20-year-old Tommy Rees to perform 50 hours of community service for resisting law enforcement and illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor.

The misdemeanor charges of resisting and battery were dropped.

Rees apologized for running from police that night and kneeing an officer in the stomach.

The judge also suspended a 30-day jail sentence and put Rees on 11-months of probation but ordered him to write the officers an apology.

Rees will be back in court next month to see how much he'll have to pay in restitution and still faces possible penalties from Notre Dame or football Coach Brian Kelly.
