In a preliminary hearing Thursday, the stolen weapon charge against Behanan was dropped.

He then pleaded guilty to marijuana possession. The judge ordered him into a diversion program -- which means he would have to take a marijuana education class as punishment.

When Behanan's attorney produced a form showing he had already taken a treatment class, the judge dismissed the drug charge.
