Woods Pleads Guilty to Abusing Dog, Waived by Blazers

By WILLIAM McCALL, AP Sports

OREGON CITY, Ore. (Jan. 21) - The Portland Trail Blazers waived forward Qyntel Woods on Friday, the same day the player pleaded guilty to abusing his pit bull.
Woods, 23, appeared in court to enter the misdemeanor plea, part of an agreement following an investigation into allegations of dog fighting. He was sentenced to 12 months probation and 80 hours of community service.

“In light of today’s developments, it is clear that the Trail Blazers and Qyntel Woods must part ways,” Trail Blazers president Steve Patterson said in a statement. “We are confident that this action is both justified and appropriate.”

Woods’ attorney Stephen Houze made a brief statement in court that acknowledged the player had not taken proper care of his pit bull, but did not mention dog fighting.

“I’ve tried to be a responsible pet owner all my life. Because of that, I am very sorry and saddened that my dog, Hollywood, was injured,” Woods said in the statement read by his attorney. “I also deeply regret the concern this has caused other pet owners and citizens in our community.”

Woods had faced a more serious charge of dog fighting, a felony in Oregon. Promoting or conducting dog fighting is punishable by up to $100,000 in fines and up to five years in jail.

The Trail Blazers suspended Woods indefinitely without pay on Oct. 12. He was in the final year of a three-year contract that would have paid him $1.1 million.
