The informant bought 0.44 grams of heroin from McCullough near apartments by Austin High School, which the informant turned over to an Austin Police Department officer, according to court records.

For the AHS fight, McCullough was sentenced to five years supervised probation in March for one count of felony second-degree riot with a dangerous weapon.

Since the Sept. 28, 2015, fight, he’s been convicted of careless driving and two DWIs, both gross misdemeanors.

His next scheduled court appearance in the drug case is July 25.
