College baseball: Texas' Garrido gets 4 days in jail in DWI case

Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas Texas baseball coach Augie Garrido has been sentenced to four days in jail on a drunken driving conviction.

Garrido attorney Michael Burnett said his client was sentenced today. Burnett said Garrido has two days' credit for time served and that Travis County officials will determine how the rest of the sentence is carried out.

Burnett said Garrido will serve the rest of the sentence before Aug. 15. Garrido also was fined $500 and had his driver's license suspended for 90 days.

Garrido was arrested in downtown Austin in January after a police officer noticed he was driving without his headlights on. He pleaded guilty two weeks later.
