NDSU linebacker gets fine, community service for underage drinking chargeFARGO – A North Dakota State University football player was fined and sentenced to community service Tuesday after pleading guilty to underage drinking.
Travis Beck, 20, was fined $325 and sentenced to 40 hours of community service after being charged with minor consuming alcohol and resisting a police officer on July 23.
He will also be attending an educational program offered to minors charged with consumption of alcohol, defense attorney Bruce Quick said.
The charge of resisting a police officer was dismissed as part of the plea agreement, Quick said.
“He basically received a standard sentence,” Quick said.
Beck, a 6-foot, 207-pound sophomore from Munich, N.D., was named the most valuable player in the Bison’s 17-6 victory over Sam Houston State in the Football Championship Subdivision title game on Jan. 7 in Frisco, Texas.
