Former NFL quarterback Todd Marinovich pleaded guilty to misdemeanor public nudity, drug and trespassing charges Tuesday.

According to the Associated Press (h/t ESPN.com), Marinovich was sentenced to 90 days in jail for an August incident in which he allegedly attempted to enter a stranger's home while naked in Irvine, California.

Per Kelly Puente of the Orange County Register, the sentence will be stayed pending six months of rehab and three years of probation.

Authorities said Marinovich was carrying a bag that contained methamphetamine, marijuana, syringes, a marijuana pipe and his wallet when he was arrested in August, according to Puente.

The 47-year-old former USC star was selected in the first round of the 1991 NFL draft by the Los Angeles Raiders.

Marinovich appeared in just eight games for the Raiders over two seasons, throwing for 1,345 yards, eight touchdowns and nine interceptions.

The Raiders released Marinovich in 1993 following his third failed drug test.

He went on to have stints with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and BC Lions of the CFL as well as the Arena Football League's Los Angeles Avengers until 2001.
