Lions general manager Tom Lewand pleaded guilty to DUI Friday and received six months of probation. Lewand admitted to having several drinks of Vodka June 25 and then getting behind the wheel with a blood alcohol level of .21 (legal limit is .08).

The Detroit Free Press offers details of the hearing:

When Lewand's arraignment hearing before Judge Daniel L. Sutton in 83rd District Court began, Roscommon County Prosecutor Mark Jernigan requested a conference in the judge's chambers to discuss "subsequent events, rather than the plea."

After the brief conference, Lewand's attorney, Todd Flood, told the judge Lewand wished to stand mute on the charges and had reached a plea agreement with the prosecutor. Jernigan said the agreement included dismissing a charge of refusing to take a PBT (breath test).

No word yet on what, if any, disciplinary action will be taken by Roger Goodell.

Lewand is president, not GM.
