GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Former Florida defensive end Carlos Dunlap has pleaded no contest to driving under the influence.

Dunlap appeared at a court hearing on Friday in Gainesville. He was placed on probation for a year and had his drivers license suspended for six months. He also must complete 50 hours of community service, participate in a victim's impact panel and pay about $1,000 in fines.

Dunlap was arrested Dec. 1 after police found him passed out behind the wheel at an intersection days before the Southeastern Conference championship game. The 6-foot-6, 290-pound junior from North Charleston, S.C., was suspended then reinstated three weeks later.

Following his two sacks against Cincinnati in the Sugar Bowl, Dunlap announced he would enter the NFL draft.
