INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Indianapolis Colts defensive tackle David Parry awaits his fate with the NFL after a Wednesday plea agreement stemming from a February arrest in Scottsdale, Ariz. kept him out of jail.

The plea agreement, first reported by TMZ.com, consisted of Parry pleading guilty to one count of misdemeanor disorderly conduct and one count of felony attempt to commit unlawful means of transportation.

Parry’s attorney, Jose Montano, told IndyStar on Thursday his client will be sentenced May 31 to an undetermined length of supervised probation.

“He was facing real prison time,’’ Montano told IndyStar.

Parry also has been charged with two counts of extreme DUI, including having a blood alcohol over .20, in a separate jurisdiction.

He’s also subject to discipline under the NFL’s personal conduct policy.

Last week, Colts general manager Chris Ballard said Parry was going about his business of preparing for the 2017 season. Parry has started all 32 games since being selected in the fifth round of the 2015 draft.

“Right now he’s competing,’’ Ballard said during an interview on 1070 The Fan. “He’s competing to play. He’s competing to make the roster.

“David’s a good player. David played a lot of snaps. He’s tough. He plays with great leverage, but he’s competing like the rest of the guys to make the roster.’’

During the offseason, the Colts have added high-priced free agent Johnathan Hankins and Al Woods to their defensive line. Hankins, who signed a three-year, $30 million contract, undoubtedly is the projected starting nose tackle.
