COLLEGE PARK, Md. (CBSDC) - The University of Maryland has reached an agreement with embattled running back Wes Brown resulting in a one-year suspension from school, according to independent student newspaper The Diamondback.

On Monday, police dropped charges against Brown of second-degree assault, theft under $1,000 and illegal use of wiretapping, stemming from a July 5 arrest in which he fled from police while being questioned about a non-fatal shooting.

Brown will be given the opportunity to be reinstated after one semester, provided that he reaches certain benchmarks established by the school, according to the report.

“Wes has indicated to me that he plans to absolutely hit each and every one of those benchmarks,” said Brown’s attorney, Jason Shapiro. “The benchmarks that the university has set are very reasonable.”

In the meantime, Brown will be attending classes at a community college while training tentatively for spring practice with the Terps, The Diamondback says.
