KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A current and former UT player struck deals in a Knox County courtroom this morning after a rowdy party arrest.

Current Vol Danny O'Brien will have to do 40 hours of community service. Afterwards, charges of underage consumption, resisting arrest and criminal impersonation will be dropped in six months as long as O'Brien stays out of trouble.

Former Vol Dontavis Sapp reached a similar deal. District attorneys agreed to drop charges of resisting arrest and purchasing alcohol for a minor after 32 hours of community service and good behavior after six months.

Vol linebacker A.J. Johnson will be in court tomorrow.
