INDIANAPOLIS — Former NBA No. 1 draft pick Greg Oden has struck a plea deal with prosecutors to settle battery charges involving a former girlfriend.

The Indianapolis Star reported Tuesday (http://indy.st/16eN28n ) that Oden pleaded guilty in December to felony battery with moderate bodily injury. Three other charges were dismissed.

Court documents say a judge fined Oden $200 and ordered him to complete 26 weeks of domestic violence counseling, alcohol counseling and 909 days of probation. A no-contact order also was put into place.

Oden was arrested in his hometown of Lawrence last August after allegedly punching the woman in the face.

A message seeking comment was left for Oden's attorney.

The Portland Trail Blazers made the ex-Ohio State star the top pick in 2007 but knee injuries largely derailed his professional career.
