A plea deal was reached Monday for radio personality Rover in connection with an incident that happened over the 2013 July 4th holiday weekend on Cleveland's Whiskey Island.

Rover, real name Shane French, pleaded guilty to inducing panic, disorderly conduct, criminal damage and a fireworks violation. The other counts were waived.

He was sentenced to one year probation and 180 suspended days in jail. He was also ordered to pay $750 in court costs and $3,414 in restitution.

Toomey, a sidekick from Rover's show, was sentenced to the same fate.

During the 2013 holiday weekend, Cleveland Police say Rover and Toomey were "highly intoxicated." At that time, the men started shooting fireworks at an officer, "nearly hitting him."

The police report goes on to say that Rover got rowdy, grabbed the officer's shirt, pushed him with both hands in his back.
