Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey pleaded no contest Monday to a misdemeanor DUI charge stemming from his April arrest, according to the Contra Costa Times.

Heyward-Bey was pulled over around 2 a.m. on April 7 on the Bay Bridge while returning from a visit to a nightclub, his attorney, Ivan Golde, told the newspaper.

Heyward-Bey, 25, agreed to plead no contest in San Francisco Superior Court to the misdemeanor charge in exchange for three years' probation and three months of DUI classes. He also will pay various fines and fees.

The California Highway Patrol said Heyward-Bey was weaving and driving slightly over the speed limit, according to the Times. A chemical test administered at the scene showed his blood-alcohol content to be .13 percent.

Heyward-Bey led the Raiders with 64 receptions for 975 yards and four touchdowns in 2011.
