The domestic-violence case involving Ravens right tackle Leon Searcy will be diverted to a pretrial intervention program, a Lake County (Fla.) state attorney spokeswoman said yesterday.
The agreement essentially puts Searcy on six months' probation, requiring him to avoid any violent contact with his wife, Sonya, and undergo anger management training.
If he successfully completes the program, the battery charges against him will be dropped. His probation also can be reduced to three months after a review by the state probation board.
An NFL spokesman said the league would not hand out any disciplinary action unless there is a recorded violation of the law. But under the league's personal conduct policy, the NFL still may require mandatory counseling.
Searcy was charged on May 9 when Lake County sheriff's deputies were summoned to his Clermont home after his wife placed a 911 call. He allegedly kicked his wife in the lower left leg as she attempted to dial 911 after an apparent argument.
Searcy's attorney, Adam Swickle, could not be reached for comment.
"You can count on Leon having a great season," said Drew Rosenhaus, Searcy's agent.
