    Former Redskins wide receiver Joshua Morgan, who was accused of assaulting a valet driver in April, has agreed to do community service to have the charge against him vacated.

    Morgan, 29, who now plays for the Chicago Bears, has agreed to 32 hours of community service. They must be completed within four months.

    If Morgan complies with the terms of the program, the misdemeanor assault charge against him will be erased from his record.

    Morgan was accused of punching Kenneth Johnson, a valet driver, outside Cities Restaurant and Lounge in downtown D.C.

    Morgan allegedly became upset when Johnson looked in the direction of Morgan's female companions. Johnson said that Morgan then punched him in the mouth. He also said that he did not provoke Morgan.

    As part of the terms of his community service, he is required to stay away from Johnson.
