Pro golfer Tripp Isenhour, who is facing charges in central Florida for killing a protected hawk, is expected to enter a plea later this month.
Details of the plea were not disclosed in court Friday.
Isenhour's attorney did not immediately return a phone message. State Attorney's Office spokesman Randy Means could only confirm the plea date of Aug. 29.
Isenhour entered a written plea of not guilty in March. The 40-year-old is charged with animal cruelty and killing a migratory bird. He's accused of hitting a hawk with a golf shot at the Grand Cypress Golf Club in Orlando when the bird's loud chirps interrupted the filming of an instructional video.
The charges carry a combined 14 months in jail and $1,500 in fines.
