Chad Kelly’s community service topic of court hearing

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Chad Kelly’s attorney says the Mississippi quarterback has been tending to a community college athletic field as part of court-ordered community service imposed after a fight with bouncers outside a Buffalo nightclub.

Kelly’s attorney is scheduled to detail Kelly’s work before a Buffalo City Court judge on Monday. Attorney Thomas Eoannou has to show Kelly’s complied with a January plea agreement that had him admit to disorderly conduct in exchange for 50 hours of community service.

The deal let Kelly avoid more serious charges of resisting arrest and menacing.

The nephew of NFL Hall of Famer Jim Kelly was arrested Dec. 21, days after signing with Mississippi.

In addition to his work at Eastern Mississippi Community College, Eoannou says Kelly will participate in a humanitarian relief mission in Haiti. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
