Court documents obtained by In Touch reveal that prosecutors agreed to dismiss the possession of a Schedule II controlled substance charge against Bryant. Instead, he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of giving false information to a law enforcement officer. As part of the plea deal, Bryant was sentenced to 12 months of probation and fined $500.

Bryant’s probation comes with several conditions, which, if violated, could result in jail time. He is required to complete 40 hours of community service within the first six months of his probation. Additionally, Bryant will undergo random drug tests as ordered by his probation officer.


“The Defendant shall provide a release which allows the Community Supervision Office to have access to all medical, clinical, treatment, attendance or work records, and for driving and criminal history,” stated the court order.

Bryant is also mandated to undergo an evaluation and/or treatment for substance abuse. During his probation, he is prohibited from consuming alcoholic beverages and using narcotics or dangerous drugs unless they are lawfully prescribed.

Bryant’s legal troubles began with his arrest on July 3, 2023, in Georgia, where he was charged with possession of fentanyl. However, the plea deal has allowed him to avoid incarceration, provided he adheres strictly to the terms of his probation.
