Smack it up, flip it, rub it down...

Dave DuersonSo we’ve hit the domestic battery tri-fecta this week. After having a battery story about a guy who failed to get to the Super Bowl (Nick Harper) and a guy who’s almost made it to the Super Bowl (Sean Locklear), we come full circle with a guy who won a Super Bowl.

Former Chicago Bear Dave Duerson pleaded guilty on Tuesday to a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery, an offense that could land him in the pen for a year. Duerson was in South Bend, Indiana last February for a Notre Dame trustees meeting, when he decided to knock his wife around a bit while the two were co-mingling in a hotel room.

Catherine Wilson, a spokeswoman for Prosecutor Michael Dvorak, said Duerson agreed to plead guilty to the domestic battery charge in return for three other counts against him being dismissed. He is scheduled to be sentenced March 14. Duerson has already resigned from the Notre Dame board of trustees, but he can keep the two Super Bowl rings he won in 1986 with the Bears and in 1991 with the New York Giants.
