Former Missouri defensive end Nick Tarpoff was given a suspended sentence for his guilty plea to felony gun possession yesterday. Instead of jail time, Tarpoff will serve five years supervised probation and will have to perform 100 hours of community service. He’s also barred from owning a gun for the next five years. In February, Tarpoff accidentally shot himself while scratching his arm with the nose of a handgun. He called police and told them that a burglar shot him. After his guilty felony plea this summer, Tarpoff was immediately dismissed from Missouri’s football team. He’s now playing for Texas A&M-Kingsville, which is an NCAA Division-II program.
