Gary Pinkel pleads guilty to DWI

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel was in a Boone County circuit courtroom on Friday morning where he pleaded guilty to the Class B misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated. Pinkel was given a 30-day suspended sentence in Boone County Jail but will instead serve two years of unsupervised probation. 

Pinkel was charged with the DWI on Wednesday night after driving home from a dinner with some friends. 

He is currently serving a one week suspension without pay from Missouri, and will not be with the team when it faces Texas Tech on Saturday. He will return to his coaching duties on Thursday in time to coach the Tigers in their regular season finale against Kansas.
