Former Plant High and University of Miami quarterback Robert Marve pleaded guilty to a felony count of false imprisonment and a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence last week.

As part of the plea deal in Hillsborough County, he received 36 months of probation.

Marve, 30, was accused of punching his then-girlfriend last May, bruising her eye, lips, chest, neck and arms, according to court records. During the altercation, according to the records, he grabbed a knife and told the woman that one of them was not making it out of the situation.

Marve led Plant to the class 4A state title in 2006 and was the state’s top player. He signed with the Hurricanes before transferring to Purdue.

He tried out with the Bucs in 2013, played in the CFL and then coached local quarterbacks.
