Departing Nebraska cornerback Alfonzo Dennard has been arrested in Lincoln for allegedly assaulting a police officer.
From Husker Extra:
At 2:15 a.m., officers monitoring a bar break witnessed Dennard strike another male near 14th and O streets, according to a Lincoln police news release.
As an officer tried to take Dennard into custody, the 22-year-old pushed the officer and punched him once on the left side of his ear and jaw, police said. Dennard was taken into custody after a brief struggle with four other officers.
Dennard, first-team All-Big Ten in 2011, had been projected as a 2nd or 3rd round draft pick. He really could not have picked a worse time to have this happen, allegedly.
