A jury on Friday acquitted football Hall of Famer Jim Brown of a charge that he made a terrorist threat to kill his wife by snapping her neck, but convicted him of a lesser charge of vandalizing her car.

Brown, 63, was charged with making a terrorist threat against his 25-year-old wife, Monique, on June 15 and vandalizing her car by smashing the windows.

"I take full responsibility for all of this," Brown told reporters. He also said when he gets angry in the future, "I should take 10 steps back."

Municipal Court Judge Dale Fischer scheduled sentencing for Sept. 23. Brown faces a maximum sentence of six months in county jail.
