Enrollment in the accelerated rehabilitative disposition program, known as ARD, will hopefully allow for Gonzalez to have only a short suspension from the Pitt football team, his attorney Joshua Karoly said.

That paper reports that police have agreed to change Gonzalez’s possession of a small amount of marijuana charge to conspiracy to possess marijuana.

“Anthony put himself in a position he shouldn’t have,” Karoly said. “He was in a car where marijuana was being smoked. He is standing up and taking responsibility for that.”

Gonzalez has decided to enroll himself in drug and alcohol classes himself and is performing community service at Pitt.
