The Miami Dolphins are currently in the middle of their bye week. Linebacker Koa Misi took the opportunity to deal with lingering legal issues in California.

The Miami Dolphins are currently in the middle of their bye week. Linebacker Koa Misi, who was arrested back in March on battery charges, was in court yesterday. Misi entered a plea of no contest to felony battery with serious bodily injury in the case.

According to an Associated Press report, Misi broke down an apartment door and struck a 19-year-old Santa Barbara, California resident after the man made "nasty comments to Misi and his friends as they walked down the street in April 2011."

Misi has reportedly paid $42,000 to the name, Casey Scott Fisher, already, and has agreed to pay for any medical bills. Misi has also agreed to 400 hours of community service.

Misi is to be sentenced in February, when the judge is expected to reduce the felony battery charge to a misdemeanor. Misi is not expected to face any jail time, but will be placed on probation and have to attend anger management classes.

Misi has started all six games this season for the Dolphins at outside linebacker. He is playing 63% of the snaps on the year. It is unknown at this time if Misi could face any punishment from the NFL for the incident.
