Scheelhaase’s father sentenced to probation
URBANA, Ill. (AP) — University of Illinois quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase’s father has been sentenced to a year of conditional discharge after pleading guilty to resisting an officer.
Nathan Creer was sentenced Tuesday in Champaign County Circuit Court. Conditional discharge is a type of probation. According to The News-Gazette (http://bit.ly/JIiCRy), he was also sentenced to 100 hours of community service.
The 51-year-old Creer was arrested at a University of Illinois football game Oct. 26. Police say he was intoxicated and uncooperative when they tried to break up a fight.
University police then banned Creer from the campus for a year. They said such bans are standard practice when someone creates trouble on campus.
Creer was already on probation for an earlier misdemeanor criminal-trespass conviction. Prosecutors said they wouldn’t try to revoke that earlier probation.
