San Francisco 49er Randy Cross has been placed on three years probation after pleading guilty to drunk driving. Cross played at Crespi High, Valley College and UCLA before being drafted into the NFL. The All-Pro offensive guard was arrested shortly after midnight Oct. 3 in Belmont, Calif., after taking three sobriety tests. Police said Cross, 32, was driving his BMW at about 45 m.p.h. in a 25 m.p.h. zone and that his blood-alcohol level was 0.19, almost twice the legal limit.
