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.
