Former Eagles player accepts deal to avoid jail

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - August 6, 2012

Mahe and four others were charged last year after authorities say they stole more than $15,000 in gasoline in 2010 from a suburban Salt Lake City company.

Mahe agreed on Monday to plead no contest to a third-degree felony theft charge and pay about $2,900 in restitution. Authorities say if he stays out of trouble for 18 months, the charge will be dismissed. Mahe's attorneys have maintained all along that he thought the gas was a gift.

He played for the Eagles over five seasons and doubled as a punt returner.
