In early November, Rockies co-cowner Charlie Monfort was arrested in Windsor, Colo. on suspicion of driving under the influence. Now, reports the AP, Monfort has pleaded guilty to DUI and been sentenced to two years of supervised probation. As well, Monfort for the first six months of his sentence must wear an ankle bracelet that detects alcohol intake and submit to up to two daily breathalyzer tests.

"I am deeply sorry for my actions," Monfort said following the sentencing.

At the time of his arrest, Monfort had an alcohol breath concentration of more than three times the legal limit. He was previously arrested on similar charges in 1999, but those charges were later reduced to driving while impaired.

Monfort, 54, and his brother Dick have owned the Rockies since 1992, the year before Colorado's first season as an expansion team. Charlie is no longer involved in any decision-making, having ceded the day-to-day operations of the club to Dick in recent years.
