Backe given one day of probation

The sordid tale of the post-wedding fight with GPD has ended for Brandon Backe.

Former Houston Astros pitcher Brandon Backe and two others pleaded no contest to misdemeanor disorderly conduct charges, stemming from a 2008 post-wedding reception ruckus with police at an upscale bar, according to court documents...

The defendants were given deferred adjudication, which means they were given probation. The probation, however, was listed as one day. The court order also considered the probation period to have ended, court documents revealed.

Backe's restaurant was closed - through no fault of his own - because of astounding ignorance back in May.
