    DENVER (AP) — Prosecutors have agreed to drop charges against Denver Broncos safety T.J. Ward in exchange for four hours of community service.

    A judge accepted the deal on Monday during a brief hearing in Denver.

    Ward previously pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor assault and disturbing the peace charges for allegedly throwing a glass mug at a female bartender at PT’s All Nude Club in May.

    Ward told the judge he understood the conditions of the program but said nothing else.

    Melissa Drazen-Smith of the Denver city attorney’s office says Ward must complete his service by Oct. 31 for the charges to be dismissed. The program is a common sentence for those with no criminal history.

    The deal comes as the Broncos get ready for their preseason opener Thursday night against Seattle.
