STILLWATER, Okla. – A former football and track star pleaded guilty to beating his former girlfriend.

On Friday, Tyreek Hill pleaded guilty to a domestic assault and battery charge that stemmed from an incident last year.

Hill’s former girlfriend, who was pregnant at the time, said Hill punched her in the face, punched her in the stomach and choked her inside their home.

She said the fight started over a text message from someone claiming that Hill was hitting on high schoolers.

Less than 24 hours after his arrest, Oklahoma State Head Coach Mike Gundy released him from the football team.

Earlier this year, Hill pleaded not guilty to the charges.

After going before the judge on Friday, Hill changed his plea to guilty.

According to the O’Colly, Hill said, “I did something I shouldn’t have done. I let my feelings take control of me… I’m sorry.”

He received a three-year deferred sentence and will pay a $1,000 fine. He will also be required to take an anger management course and provide proof of employment or enrollment.
