… Avoids Jail

Ex-NFL All-Pro OT Branden Albert just caught a BIG break in his jewelry store taser case … and if he keeps his nose clean, he won’t spend a minute behind bars.

TMZ Sports broke the story … Albert was arrested back in February in Atlanta after cops say he went berserk while shopping — ultimately ending in him being tasered twice, arrested and charged with 2 felonies.

Now, we’ve learned he’s been accepted into Georgia’s Pretrial Intervention Program — which means if Albert abides by terms set by the court, he won’t be prosecuted.

The terms … Albert has to pay the jewelry store for the stuff he broke … and do 40 hours of community service. He also has to complete a mental health evaluation and take any prescribed medication.

Once completed, the case will be thrown out … and Albert can petition the court to have any trace of the charge expunged from his record.

If he doesn’t fulfill the terms … prosecutors could haul him back into court to face the felony charges — where he’d face up to 10 years in prison.
