NFL linebacker Rey Maualuga dodged a bullet … 'cause he ain't gonna spend a single minute behind bars for allegedly grabbing a club employee by the throat — as long as he stays outta trouble.

As we previously reported, Maualuga — who spent 9 seasons in the NFL with the Bengals and Dolphins — was arrested in Miami in Nov. 2017 after officials say he got into a physical altercation over a $40 bar tab. He's accused of shoving and grabbing a bar employee by the throat.

31-year-old Maualuga was initially charged with misdemeanor battery and faced up to a year in jail if convicted.

But, TMZ Sports learned, the former USC Trojan cut a deal with prosecutors in which he agreed to complete a pretrial diversion program and, in exchange, the charge will be dropped.

The program requires Rey to attend two 6-hour anger management courses — designed to teach conflict resolution and impulse control … and he's gotta stay away from the club.

Seems like a good deal to us.

Rey — who was cut by the Dolphins after his arrest — is currently a free agent.
