‘Bachelorette’ contestant sentenced for bar fight
FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — Former “Bachelorette” contestant Kasey Kahl will avoid jail time after pleading no contest to battery stemming from a bar fight in California.
Kahl entered the plea Thursday to a felony count of battery causing bodily injury. An assault count was dismissed.
The 30-year-old Clovis man was sentenced to 180 days of community service.
Kahl was accused of breaking a man’s nose during a fight last year in Fresno. His attorney, Gerald Schwab, says his client acted in self-defense.
Kahl was a contestant on ABC reality TV show’s “The Bachelorette” in 2010.
