BUTTE, Mont. (AP) - Robbie Knievel, the youngest son of late motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel, has received a two-year deferred sentence for a drunken-driving crash in Butte.

The Montana Standard reports (https://goo.gl/SpJeiv ) Knievel said in court Thursday he was “definitely guilty” of endangering those who were involved in a four-car pileup after he ran a red light in Butte on April 21, 2015. The 54-year-old pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence, a second offense, and was ordered to complete 40 hours of community service.

Knievel, who was overcome with emotion at the hearing, said “I would like to say from the bottom of my heart I thank God nobody got hurt.”

He says he has been sober since his arrest.
