GREELEY — Colorado Rockies co-owner Charlie Monfort has pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of alcohol.

Monfort entered the plea Friday in his hometown of Greeley and was sentenced to two years of probation.

He was arrested Nov. 5 after police say he was pulled over and found to be driving with a breath alcohol concentration level more than three times the legal limit. He was also sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to driving while ability impaired following an arrest in Greeley in 1999.

Outside court, The Tribune (http://bit.ly/1bE2Pcm) reported that Monfort said he was deeply sorry for his actions and that "everyday is battle" in dealing with alcohol abuse.
