Prosecutors in Castle Rock, Colo., have dismissed an assault charge against former University of Kansas quarterback Brock Berglund after he completed community service, took a conflict management course and paid restitution to the alleged victim.
A spokeswoman for the 18th Judicial District Attorney's office said Wednesday that Berglund fulfilled the terms that were approved by the alleged victim. Berglund paid $2,935 in restitution.
The highly touted quarterback was charged after allegedly punching a man during a party on April 9. Because of the misdemeanor charge, Berglund didn't practice with the Jayhawks last season. The freshman was recently dismissed from the team, but not released from his scholarship.
Berglund hired a lawyer to help with his release and will meet Friday in Lawrence, Kan., with the university's student-athlete appeals board.
