PITTSBURGH (AP) - University of Pittsburgh defensive end Jabaal Sheard has been reinstated to the team after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct for a fight last month in which he threw a man through an art gallery’s glass door.

The senior from Hollywood, Fla., had been charged with aggravated assault and resisting arrest after he got into a fight in the early morning hours of July 18.

A district judge reduced the charges and ordered Sheard to pay a $300 fine and the other man’s medical bills. Sheard also was ordered to apologize.

Sheard’s attorney called the fight unfortunate.

Coach Dave Wannstedt says Sheard also will be disciplined by the team. The 21-year-old started all 13 games for the Panthers last season. Pitt opens preseason camp Saturday.
