TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Former NFL and University of Arizona kicker Max Zendejas has pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal damage involving a restaurant space he leased from the Tucson school.

Pima County prosecutors say the 50-year-old Zendejas could get up to two years in prison when he’s sentenced Sept. 30.

Zendejas opened a Mexican restaurant and bar called Zendejas 13 across the street from Arizona Stadium in 2010.

The Arizona Attorney General’s Office accused Zendejas of stripping the restaurant of a walk-in refrigerator, HVAC system, compressors, ceiling fans and kitchen sinks worth thousands of dollars after the business closed in 2013.

Zendejas played for the Wildcats from 1982 to 1985 and holds the school record for career points with 360.

He spent three seasons in the NFL with Washington and Green Bay.
