Patriots’ Alfonzo Dennard arrested on suspicion of DUI

Alfonzo Dennard AP

Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard has been arrested again.

Dennard, who was sentenced to 30 days in jail three months ago after he was convicted of assaulting a police officer, was arrested early this morning on suspicion of driving under the influence.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that Dennard was pulled over in Lincoln, Nebraska around 2 a.m. after he was spotted by officers straddling a lane line. He reportedly refused to take a blood-alcohol test.

In addition to his 30-day jail sentence, Dennard was given two years of probation for assaulting a police officer, and this arrest could be considered a probation violation. The judge in his assault case said she would allow Dennard to wait until after the 2013 NFL season to serve his 30-day sentence; it is not clear whether this arrest will make the judge reconsider that.

Dennard could also face NFL discipline, and it’s possible that the league will consider him a repeat violator of the personal-conduct policy, even though the assault on the police officer happened before he was drafted by the Patriots.

    Nothing good happens after midnight. This moron is on probation and has an infant daughter at home. Apparently dropping from the 2nd round to the 7th round of the draft, and the subsequent loss of millions, wasn’t a big enough wake up call.

    Is anyone else outraged that this guy is being given special treatment and allowed to serve his sentence after the season? He assaulted a police officer! If his arse was sent to jail just like you and I maybe this offense wouldn’t have happened! Its time to put an end to athletes being treated differently than the rest of society!

    The White House just announced a presidential press conference for later this morning where Obame will once again claim as he did in the Trayvon Martin case that if he had a son it would look like AlBozo Dennard.

    Can not and will not violate his probation. It’s a motor vehicle violation not a criminal charge. He’s still a douche though.

  23. ColtsWinColtsWin!! says: Jul 11, 2013 8:21 AM

    NY or New England, there is always a circus around.

  24. golfsox78 says: Jul 11, 2013 8:21 AM

    As a Pats fan, I am getting sick of seeing this crap. Dennard was let off pretty easy from his last alcohol related incident. And he still ends up with a DUI, even if it is suspicion. I drink my fair share of alcohol but this is just another stupid mistake. It makes the organization look dumb.

  25. smokingto says: Jul 11, 2013 8:22 AM

    Whats next: Tom Brady beats up his wife? or The Gronk pile drives a 12 year old?

  26. classyjacklambert says: Jul 11, 2013 8:23 AM

    If anyone has a Dennard jersey, they can trade it in for a pack of Tom Brady chewing gum at any Patriots store.

  27. triplehops says: Jul 11, 2013 8:25 AM

    The assault on the police officer happened before he was drafted by the Patriots? You reap what you sow.

    All you haters make me laugh – funny how the stands fill up when the Pats play away. Are you clowns really going to the game to watch your teams lose or to watch a real NFL team? Petehemlock write “crumbling dynasty” – HA! This team has never been about one player, they will cut Denard just as fast as they did Hernandez if necessary. AND, they will still go to the play-offs. Adversity only makes this team stronger – look at the history cry-babies. Hate all you want but there is nothing but love for this team – worldwide. This is why you hate – feel free and suffer baby.

  30. dboldave says: Jul 11, 2013 8:28 AM

    Can’t wait to hear from all of the GM’s who will tell everyone that Dennard wasn’t even on their boards.

  31. grpatriot says: Jul 11, 2013 8:29 AM

    Stupid is as stupid does! Bad, bad timing! Wonder if his probation gets rescinded ?

  32. purplepillager says: Jul 11, 2013 8:29 AM

    Another distraction…at this rate the Patriots won’t even make the playoffs. Not a fan of the AFC East but the Dolphins are starting to look like the team to beat.

  33. fanofevilempire says: Jul 11, 2013 8:30 AM

    Bob Kraft was duped!!!! Stay classy Patriots. This pathetic franchisr signs any type of lowlife to win a game. Never speak about the players that Cincy signs when this classless team takes much worse and many more

  35. bart3976 says: Jul 11, 2013 8:31 AM

    There needs to be a Mad TV episode where Belichick Hernandez and Dennard all sit down for dinner and talk about their problems.

  36. xxsweepthelegxx says: Jul 11, 2013 8:31 AM

    If you want to give him a pass on his assault because it was a fight at a bar, while he was in college, and the cop was off duty and in street clothes….fine. I even tried myself. But this was plain old stupid Alfonzo. You deserve the punishment that is coming your way. With everything that has happened to the Pats this offseason, you’ve GOT to be aware of the scrutiny you’re under. Stupid is…..stupid does.

    This kid got a second chance and screwed it up. He was one of the bright spots in a weak secondary.

    He is on probation, now he is in big trouble.

    If he is that dumb? As a Patriots fan I could care less if they cut him.

  46. bigperm33 says: Jul 11, 2013 8:44 AM

    goodbye alfonzo. i dont see how the Patriots keep this this guy – they gave him a chance out of college despite his arrest, spoke on his behalf at sentencing, and he can’t even go a full offseason without getting in trouble. i just do not understand how they guys can continually be so stupid. you make all that money – TAKE A CAB.

    At least the Patriots have another starting CB that is a high character guy. No chance of Aqib Talib getting in trouble.

  59. rockthered1286 says: Jul 11, 2013 8:52 AM

    Suspicion of DUI is essentially DUI, they just can’t charge him formally if he refuses the breathalizer. If a judge hears “he did not pass a field sobriety test, was riding between 2 lanes at 2am, and refused a breathalizer test,” and this is on top of a history of alchol related incidents? He’s as good as done. Enjoy that debacle NewEngland.

    When a coach brings in a troubled player and it works out great then they are lauded as a risk taker or people talk about how the old coach just couldn’t control that certain player. When things don’t work out, people say they used poor judgement and have a bad personnel department. It’s all hindsight and revisionist history, I’m not even a Pats fan, but it’s unfair to think any team could see the future, or that a player who has screwed up couldn’t turn things around and be a contributor for another team.

    ____________________________________

    How do you know, Einstein? The previous incident was outside of a bar. There is a good chance that he is allowed to drink no alcohol as part of his probation. If that is the case, then he violated.

    Wrong
    The second he was placed under arrest, he violated probation. Regardless if he was arrested for DUI, murder, shoplifting or a MV violation, because he was arrested, he violated probation. If he was given a speeding ticket, a warning, etc. that did NOT result in an arrest, he would NOT have violated probation

    Patriot haters are loving all this aren’t they. He will get a suspension but the beginning if the season means nothing the Pats they’ll still be in the playoffs and still be a threat to win the Super Bowl. Besides, their first 3 games are cake anyway. You haters are enjoying this but the Pats will get the last laugh as they always do and you ignorant, oblivious trolls will go back under your bridge where you belong.

    Btw Pats fans aren’t mad its more annoyed its like a mosquito that keeps buzzing around your head its annoying. That’s why Pats fans are better than the rest we don’t troll we don’t jump to conclusions and we’re smart enough to separate facts from the bs all you bring up.

    harrisonhits2,
    Your kidding me right? Just because he didn’t set out that night to assault a police officer doesn’t make it any less appauling his lack of respect for the law and its officers.
    Using your logic I guess if his dui resulted in a crash injurying people he should be given special consideration since he did not set out from his home to do so?

    Pats are saints for cutting AH but no one talks about Dennard, Haynesworth, Talib, Blount, Stallworth and others…
    ——————

    Stallworth was a member of another team when his incident occured, same with Haynesworth.

    Talib has been no issue…?

    Dennard got in a fight and punched an under cover cop. Lot of players have DUIs unfortunatly.

  100. brazzz01 says: Jul 11, 2013 10:15 AM

    They’re not going to cut him for just a DUI. They probably wouldn’t set that precedent.

    Besides they signed a guy (twice) last year who was convicted of DUI manslaughter.

  101. indywilson40 says: Jul 11, 2013 10:15 AM

    Prediction: Aqib Talib will be arrested before training camp starts.

    Well … as a Pats fan … I think the Patriots have taken over the top spot from the Bengals as the NFLs most criminal. What an off season…

    He will cut by noon tomorrow…

    He is on friggan probation. I mean how can someone be that stupid. Good riddence.

    “I think the days of poking fun at the Cincinnati Bengals for being the All Felon team may be over.”

    Not really – almost every team has low-lifes on the roster these days, but the bengals are still losers who have yet to ever win anything.

    This type of stuff has been going on in the NFL for many years, so it’s ridiculous of anyone to single out the Patriots for this. Cowboys and Bengals players have been getting away with this stuff for many years and they’re all still on their respective teams.

  109. bcgreg says: Jul 11, 2013 11:56 AM

    The only people dumber than Alfonso Dennard are the haters here.

    The Patriot way has NEVER been about the “character” of a player per se. The Pats take no more chances on “troubled” players than any other team. Maybe back when they had McGinest, Law, Harrison and Seymour, the Pats could absorb the “troubled” player easier because of the type of leadership on the team at that time. They simply don’t have those type of guys right now. Although, it’s hard to believe that Wilfork, Mayo, and now Adrian Wilson don’t hold that type of cache.

    What the Patriot Way is mostly about is the “next man up” theory. Someone gets hurt? Next man up. Someone gets cut? Next man up. No excuses like most other teams (oh, so and so got hurt, and our season was shot) . And, “do your job!” Belicheck says it all the time on the sidelines. DO YOUR JOB!

    It’s not about draft strategy or paying free agents top dollar either. In a nutshell, it’s about value. They don’t draft players because others think they should (see Clay Matthews–ouch). They don’t overpay for FAs even their own (see McGinest, Law, Seymour). It’s also about knowing when to cut ties with players (see Milloy) no matter how good they’ve been. It’s heartless sometimes (see Kyle Love), but it’s business.

    Haters like to mention Haynesworth and Ocho. I agree they didn’t pan out, but they gave up nothing for them. Low risk, high reward value! On the flip side, how’d Welker and Moss work out? They gave up NOTHING for them. Low risk, high reward value!

    The Patriot way also isn’t about kissing everyone’s butt in interviews or with information. It’s about keeping things internal to limit distractions (see the handling of Tebow at the most recent OTAs as compared to how the Jets handled Tebow). Distractions are aplenty this offseason, so we’ll see how the Patriot Way works. But, I guarantee, you won’t hear from Tebow, and after the first day, you won’t hear about Hernandez either (I’ll only talk about the players that are here). And if Dennard is cut, you won’t hear about him either (same thing).

    That’s the Patriot Way.

  110. nflpoker says: Jul 11, 2013 12:10 PM

    Timing is everything. He may or may not have violated his probation, but he got arrested. Also, it’s not that long after AH got arrested and cut.

    My guess he will probably be cut, as well. I guess you can’t cure stupid. His career is probably over.

  111. mazblast says: Jul 11, 2013 12:19 PM

    Why this obsession with the Patriots? They haven’t won a title in eight seasons, and have NEVER won one without cheating so blatantly that even The Great Roger Goodell, butt-wiper of Bob Kraft, had to notice it.

    I like the way Patriots fans have changed with the times, though. It used to be “win the Super Bowl or the season’s a failure”, now it’s “get to the conference championship game or the season’s a failure”, next it will be “win the division or…”. It’s easy to kick the ball through the goalposts when the posts are on casters.

    Finally, as for those of us who loathe the Pats and how, eight years after their last tainted title, they are still the media’s darling (starting with ESPN), we are not “haters” just for not liking your team, its paranoid, misanthrope coach, and its glamor-boy, pouting-when-anything-goes-wrong QB. We just don’t like your team, its coach, its QB, and YOUR greater-than-thou attitude. You’ve become like the Yankees, but without nearly as many titles to back it up.

    What’s with these judges who allow players to serve jail time at their own convenience? Justice demands that the criminals serve their time now, not months later.

    The Pats could never be Saints! However, Pope John Paul II cleared waivers and will be joining the team shortly; according to an article on Saints Report! LOL!!!

  114. bigwii says: Jul 11, 2013 1:11 PM

    People on here are really oblivious, especially Pats haters. Yes, you’re all haters who bring up nonsense about this team every time you get a chance. You all get so excited when stuff like this happens because it gives you all something new to talk about. The “spy gate” crap you all talk about the “tainted titles” you all talk about is nonsense. It’ like the game telephone you all played back in elementary school. Years and years of you all coming up with one thing after another to try to prove a point, when inn fact what it is now is nowhere near what happened and if you all took time to look up what actually happened and researched it a little before you all go off on your hating rants you would know that their titles aren’t tainted, sorry the truth hurts. Their titles aren’t “tainted” they earned them unless you have actual proof that they “cheated” in every game before they got caught, and you don’t so get over it wipe your tears and move on. As far as not being “relevant” they very well are by your standards if they don’t win every years they’re not “relevant.” Why isn’t that the case for any of the other teams. They perform and keep they’re mouths shut they let their play on the field do the talking for them. They have the best record over the past decade, as well as the many records they’ve broken. They are very relevant that’s why ESPN talks about them so much they are the golden standard of the NFL. 99% of the talk about them comes from the media and fans anyway.

    You all want this team to fail so badly and you look for anything you can find to talk about how it will come true. The truth is you all need to take a lesson from Pats and their fans. They are a classy organization as hard as it might be for you to believe because you hate them so much, plus they keep to themselves and are a private organization. Same with the fans, you don’t see the fans going out and hating on every team.

    You all jump to conclusions anytime something comes out like high school girls on a rumor mill. Anything about the Patriots you all jump on it and start gating it’s kind of sad. I’m starting to think you all don’t even read the article, just the headline for a subject and then you make a comment hating.

    In the case of the article for all the uneducated people on here DUI suspicion doesn’t always mean he is guilty. It means he exercised his right to not do a road test. It means they had to take him to the station to do a blood test. Once the results come in then we will know if he was indeed drunk. If he is he will be suspended, and maybe cut. You all act lie because they lost him and Hernandez they’re doomed. You would love that wouldn’t you. Too bad it’s not going to happen the Pats always play better with adversity or maybe you don’t know history that well, or only believe what you want to believe. Either way all you haters just prove how worthless your comments on here. Maybe a comment about the actual subject would be nice instead of one hate comment after another it is what this site is about after all. Haters you all suck get a life and worry about your own team for once, i swear you all spend more time hating on the Pats then talking about your own teams.

  115. bigwii says: Jul 11, 2013 1:13 PM

    On a subject related to the story this is worse for the NFL because it’s just another arrest of the many in these past months including the Broncos exec. This is only getting worse its like a virus something has to be done about this.

    Quite a few essays on here. You Patriot fans can get off your high horse anytime. First of all, without Brady, you’re nothing. Secondly, you are just like most other teams (not all) when it comes to how you handle your business. Nothing special about it in any way. Seriously, get over it.

    Adversity only makes this team stronger – look at the history cry-babies. Hate all you want but there is nothing but love for this team – worldwide.

    __________

    Laughable and proven wrong.

    The Patriots are one of the more disliked franchises outside of the Boston area. That is true of fans and players.

    When Tom Brady and BeliCheat retire simultaneously, the Patriots will lose. Then those stands will be a wasteland, indistinguishable from Jacksonville. The chowd bandwagonners will bail on the team faster then rats on a sinking ship, and go back to what they really care about, baseball.

    Only only has to look at the franchise historically to know this is true.

    Don’t worry man, you wont be alone bailing from that bandwagon.

  119. bcgreg says: Jul 11, 2013 1:56 PM

    @ squared80

    Without Montana, the 49ers would have been nothing.
    Without P Manning, the Colts would have been nothing.
    Without John Elway…

    What is your point?!?

    Actually, without Brady, the Pats went 11-5 in 2008.
    Without Manning, the Colts went 1-15 in 2011.

  120. bcgreg says: Jul 11, 2013 1:58 PM

    One more thing about the Patriot Way from my earlier post? Ask Brandon Merriweather about “Do your job!” He’s on record as saying he would freelance. He was cut shortly thereafter.

    Win is a win in the books. The Giants D out played the Pats Offensive, it was impossible for Brady to throw with his face in the turf.

    Last game the Giants had more total yards, total plays, better T.O.P., no turnovers, also the Pats give up a safety.

    No Luck there, Giants out played them.

    2007, Giants again had more total yards, better T.O.P. Pats give up more sacks, each sack average about 7.4 yards lost.

    By those keys there was no luck, Giants out played them in both games.
