A former USC tight end who was accused of going on a crime spree in January agreed to a plea deal Thursday and was sentenced to six years in prison.

Bryce Dixon, 19, and an ex-LSU football player allegedly went on a crime spree near the USC campus on Jan. 19. Dixon allegedly committed seven violent robberies in five hours, according to TMZ Sports. Officials said the pair held a knife to a woman’s throat.

Dixon was charged with multiple counts of robbery, carjacking and assault with a deadly weapon. TMZ Sports reported Dixon pleaded no contest in the plea deal.

The former tight end was kicked off the football team in 2015.
