Former New Orleans Saints defensive end Charles Grant, who was charged with involuntary manslaughter for his involvement in a nightclub fight that killed a pregnant woman,
pleaded no contest to a charge of affray and was sentenced to probation.

Assistant District Attorney Ron Smith says Grant was fined $1,000 and ordered to pay $20,000 restitution to the Early County Sheriff's Office last week for his role in the February, 2008
fight.

The 31-year-old Grant, who is from nearby Colquitt, Ga., was stabbed in the neck during the fight that resulted in the death of 23-year-old Korynda Reed.

Smith says Grant's longtime friend, Laquient Macklin, and Grant's cousin, Marshae Stromer, pleaded guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter and affray and paid $1,000 fine and put on two years probation.
