Tri-City Fever player enters modified guilty plea in assault case

PASCO, Wash. - A Tri-Cities Fever football player who broke through security at the Tri-Cities Airport and later bit off the tip of a jail guard's finger has been sentenced to a year in jail.

Twenty-five-year-old Michael Rayfield Hodges of Richland entered modified guilty pleas last month in Franklin County Superior Court and was sentence yesterday on assault charges. Hodges said he didn't remember the incidents last November but agreed he would be found guilty.

The Tri-City Herald reports Hodges had been taking steroids to build himself up and was in a "roid rage" at the airport when he claimed he was god, pushed his way through security and broke a window. A few days later he bit a finger in a fight with four jail guards.
