As part of a plea agreement, the district attorney's office in Douglas County has dropped the assault charge against former Kansas football player Maciah Long.

Long had to plead no contest to marijuana possession. He was sentenced to probation and has to complete an anger management program, according to a report by the Lawrence Journal-World .

Long was arrested in August after his then-girlfriend reported he threatened her with a gun during an argument. Prosecutors say the woman has moved out of state and didn’t want to participate in prosecuting the case.

Long, a sophomore from Houston, was dismissed from the team the day after he was arrested. He played linebacker and tight end for the Jayhawks in 2016.
