ATHENS, Greece -- A U.S. Olympic volleyball player was given a 15-month suspended sentence Wednesday for assaulting an officer and resisting arrest.

Clay Stanley, who lives in Greece and plays for an Athens team, said he was drunk at the time and apologized for Sunday's scuffle at a nightclub after the Closing Ceremony of the Olympics.

Stanley also was charged with assaulting a pregnant woman during the scuffle, but those charges subsequently were dropped.
