BLACKSBURG, Va. (WFXR) — A suspended Virginia Tech basketball player will not spend any time in jail for driving under the influence.

A judge found Tyrece Radford guilty of DUI stemming from an incident in late-January where he was arrested by Blacksburg police and was charged with driving while intoxicated and carrying a concealed weapon.

On the weapons charge, the judge took that charge under advisement. It could be dropped if Radford stays out of trouble for one year.

Radford was given a suspended 60-day jail sentence as well as supervised probation for one year.

He was also fined $250.

Virginia Tech suspended Radford from the team following his arrest on Jan. 24.
