Alfonzo Dennard says he didn’t fail or refuse any sobriety tests

Dennard Arrested DUI Fotball AP

Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard was arrested early Thursday morning on suspicion of DUI, which led the Patriots to issue a statement saying they were “extremely disappointed” to learn of the arrest.

Dennard hasn’t issued a formal statement of his own, but Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network spoke to someone who has heard Dennard’s side of the story and the second-year cornerback takes issue with some parts of the police report.

According to the police report, Dennard was pulled over after he was spotted straddling a lane line and that the officer who approached the car administered a field sobriety test after smelling alcohol. The report also indicates that Dennard failed to comply with the tests, which is one of the charges he faces along with suspicion of DUI and the initial driving infraction.

According to Rapoport’s report, however, Dennard says he blew into the Breathalyzer twice and that the officer told him he registered a BAC below the level for a DUI. Dennard also said that the officer told him he did not blow hard enough, which led to the did not comply charge, and that he was never asked to take a blood test. Dennard also claims that he passed the field sobriety test given at the scene.

Dennard still faces a 30-day jail sentence after being found guilty of assaulting a police officer before the Patriots drafted him last year. That sentence is scheduled to be served next March, but Dennard also faces two years of probation that he could be guilty of violating if he’s found guilty on the charges stemming from Thursday’s traffic stop.

    Now this sounds fishy…they would have given him a blood test if they thought he was under the influence. Wasn’t this in the same county where he assaulted an officer?

  2. jakec4 says: Jul 12, 2013 1:17 PM

    Seems like it could be a plausible explanation. Just because he’s been in in trouble before doesn’t exonerate the cop from any wrong doing.

  3. Pat MyHog says: Jul 12, 2013 1:18 PM

    COPS SUCK. Still Dennard should have some brains and spend his offseason in New England than in Nebraska where the cops are looking for any opportunity to take shots at this kid

  5. urmomsmyho says: Jul 12, 2013 1:20 PM

    Sounds like he was duped into taking those tests!

    “Dennard still faces a 30-day jail sentence after being found guilty of assaulting a police officer before the Patriots drafted him last year. That sentence is scheduled to be served next March”

    So I guess that NFL players have the luxury of doing their jailtime whenever it’s convenient for them.
    And we wonder why NFL players feel like they are above the law…

  7. ttommytom says: Jul 12, 2013 1:22 PM

    All DUI arrests (refusals and otherwise) are brought into the station and then VIDEOTAPED.

    If there is no video, the cops dropped the ball or are lying.

    Otherwise, Denard is lying.

    Pretty cut and dry. Thus the reasoning for jurisdictions to videotape. No he said, she said…

  8. jackdaniels1 says: Jul 12, 2013 1:22 PM

    I guess that settles it…innocent!

  9. Patskrieg dot com says: Jul 12, 2013 1:23 PM

    But why would a police force with an obvious vendetta against Dennard for punching one of their officers lie about him passing a breathalyzer (twice) AND a field sobriety test???

  10. thegreatgabbert says: Jul 12, 2013 1:23 PM

    Alf feels he was completely sobriety at the time.

  11. jnbnet says: Jul 12, 2013 1:23 PM

    Hope he’s right. This kid has tons of talent. It would be sad to see him screw it up.

  12. hdahs143 says: Jul 12, 2013 1:24 PM

    Of course he passed everything. That is why he was arrested. And why he violated his soon to be revoked probation.

    Real smart.

    I wonder why the Pats weren’t “extremely disappointed” when he punched the police officer in the face. They still drafted him after that.

  15. tacowrecker says: Jul 12, 2013 1:26 PM

    Yeah he didn’t punch any cops that time either. Poor bastards just slipped and fell onto his fists. Repeatedly.

    Alf did his best to show sobriety, but the cop had this booger showing in one of his nostrils, so he couldn’t help grinning a bit…

  19. surfinbird1 says: Jul 12, 2013 1:32 PM

    Gee, I wonder if this cop is a buddy of the other cop? Dennard should have stayed away from that place for a while.

  21. stoopidfool says: Jul 12, 2013 1:37 PM

    the original story has it that he was not arrested, but ‘brought in’ for ‘suspicion of DUI’ and was yet to be charged

    has he even been charged yet?
    has he even stood in front of a judge yet?

    I mean either he did it or he didn’t do it, and if he did, well off with his head, but there was little actually definitive about the whole situation

  22. thestrategyexpert says: Jul 12, 2013 1:37 PM

    Oh well this changes things a little bit, maybe the Patriots should send him a fruit basket.

  23. ozymandias121 says: Jul 12, 2013 1:38 PM

    People in the media spotlight hate being tried in the court of opinion, yet every one of them try and sway that same opinion each and every time. Where I come from, if you can’t own up to what you did, right or wrong, you are nothing but a coward. Now, it’s what can be proven.

    In all fairness to Alfonzo, he was probably too drunk to remember.

  26. nesportsfan0428 says: Jul 12, 2013 1:41 PM

    This article is making the rounds, and something is definately fishy here.

    Denard’s camp is pressing the police to release the information, but they are refusing (which is their right, but not exactly an act of “good faith”)

  27. Kaz says: Jul 12, 2013 1:42 PM

    On a side note people who are constantly in trouble with the law, innocent or not, have to realize they need to build a solid reputation before people will believe them. They always come out with these “it’s not fair” “it wasn’t my fault” “their picking on me” stories, but nothing from their past gives anyone reading reason to believe they’ve been wronged.

    While it’s possible the police have something against him for punching a police officer, and that isn’t fair, who punches police officers? When you do things like that you place yourself on a different level than the average Joe being unfairly targeted with no prior issues/arrests/dui’s, or in the “wrong place at the wrong time”.

    It’s like Pacman. Who cares who was right or wrong in the situation. You shouldn’t be once again in a situation that has you defending yourself against negative publicity.

  28. tigerlilac says: Jul 12, 2013 1:42 PM

    They videotape all of these tests now. You can tell by watching the tape if someone is intoxicated.

    Years ago I was arrested coming home from a Christmas party. The arresting officer apologized but said he had to take me in because if something happened (an accident) after stopping me and letting me go he would be screwed. At the station I passed the Breathalyzer (actually I was in a mid range, under the legal limit but above the assumption of sobriety). The cops taking the test were visibly pissed (why, I can’t tell you).

    They took it to court and the cops lied about the field sobriety test and the facts about pulling me over (they didn’t pull me over, I was out of my car and the keys were not in the ignition; I had car problems.) and the prosecutor knew they were lying. We let the judge decide and he found me not guilty.

    I have neverr trusted the cops or prosecutors since that incident.

  29. guiness17 says: Jul 12, 2013 1:42 PM

    It was pointed out in the original story that this charge came from the same county as the assault charge, and that means 2 things:

    1. The police there might well have a grudge against him, and anything else from there should be viewed with skepticism.

    2. He should either stay the hell away from there, or be extra careful and make sure he doesn’t give them any opportunities.

    Not to say he did nothing wrong.

  30. titansbro says: Jul 12, 2013 1:43 PM

    In this case, I’ll believe the cops until we see evidence backing up his ludicrous story.

  31. Ridley Me This says: Jul 12, 2013 1:44 PM

    I agree. It is entertaining to see the Pats go through something so dramatic. But they did go 18-1 after spygate. So I thought the question of them needing to video tape opponents in order to win was laid to rest. If your going to take shots you now have enough current material to use.

  33. fdugrad says: Jul 12, 2013 1:46 PM

    So, is that the line of acceptable behavior for this young man? Is he to be congratulated for not refusing a field test and not falling down? Exactly what never-neverland does THIS out-of-touch individual inhabit?!

    As a Pat’s fan, I wanted to them to cut this guy immediately. Now I’m not so sure. I’m fed up with these spoiled athletes. But, a cop with a vendetta? Both scary and plausible.

  36. jmak79 says: Jul 12, 2013 1:47 PM

    Not a lawyer, but what kind of charge is suspicion of DUI? You either are or are not driving under the influence. Be nice to get clarification of charge and Nebraska laws.

  37. rickrock6661982 says: Jul 12, 2013 1:47 PM

    Just blame it all on Aaron Hernandez, Alfonzo

    Works for Urban Meyer and the New England Patriots

  38. pastabelly101 says: Jul 12, 2013 1:49 PM

    Pats have done “absolutely nothing since spygate”?- only best record in NFL ,an Afc championship appearance, two Super Bowl appearances, 0ne they lose on a one in a million catch another on a drop by Welker . I think about 30 other teams would take that if that constitutes “absolutely nothing”

  39. whatnojets says: Jul 12, 2013 1:50 PM

    Not a Pats fan and not a fan of Dennard….BUT

    Arrest the cop on the grounds of false imprisonment and harassment!

    About time cops get busted for abusing the system! They think that they are ‘gods” and answer to nobody!!

    Throw him in with the general prison population

  40. mpops86 says: Jul 12, 2013 1:53 PM

    Why would they arrest him for “suspicion” of DUI if he took the breathalyzer? Wouldn’t the breathalyzer be conclusive?

    If what Dennard is saying is true, the cops will have some explaining to do.

  41. tjacks7 says: Jul 12, 2013 1:56 PM

    Dennard still faces a 30-day jail sentence after being found guilty of assaulting a police officer before the Patriots drafted him last year. That sentence is scheduled to be served next March.

    ———

    Must be nice to be a pro athlete and serve your time on your own schedule. Maybe Aaron Hernandez can join him in March and then just keep showing up every March after that for the next 25 to life?

    _________________

    Lol yeah I bet you’d give your right arm to have whatever crappy team you follow achieve the “nothing” the Pats have in recent years.

    Since spygate –

    More regular season wins than any other team.

    Divisional champs every year but one and 11-5 the year they weren’t.

    AFC Champs 2 years.

    18-1 and yeah they lost the Super Bowl by a whopping 3 points was it, but for Pats fans it was still a magical season that provide incredible moment after incredible moment throughout the season.

    Set virtually every offensive record possible in 2007.

    The other SB loss which again, it was a hell of a season for Pats fans and that loss doesn’t take away from all the great moments through the rest of the season.

    Just have to laugh at you people who huff and puff and act like what the Pats have achieved is “nothing” just because they haven’t won further super bowls. In case you haven’t noticed, its incredibly hard to get to and win the SB. So hard that some teams have never done so.

    Of course it would have been that much nicer if the Pats had won the SBs in 07 and 11, but such is life. Sometimes another team and their fans have to get a turn. I’ll still take what the Pats have achieved over any other team has done in the last 11 years.

  43. kuranda84 says: Jul 12, 2013 1:56 PM

    I’m seeing a similar pattern w/ Dennard.

    Here’s my free advice – if cops don’t like you in a certain area, you’d better steer clear. That probably goes for everyone, but especially people that punch cops.

  44. jagmankane says: Jul 12, 2013 2:00 PM

    First off… I think legally, they are only allowed to make you blow once, or you have the right to only blow once.
    Secondly, you also have the OPTION to do a field sobriety test, instead of the breathalyzer.

    Unless the law is different in Nebraska than here in Florida. (Which may be so… Though I didn’t think it was)

    Given 2 breathalyzers and a field test that weren’t failed I’d say he has a case against the PD for defamation and wrongful arrest.

    This doesn’t discount him driving impaired, obviously had been drinking but not “legally drunk”. But it does raise a question into the ethics of the PD dept in Nebraska.

    I’m far from a Pats fan but, I think this is being compounded by the Hernandez case and his previous run-in. Which is sad. Also, to those who have blind hatred for the Pats, what have they done since Spygate? Multiple division crowns, afc championships and SB appearances. To name a few things.

  46. bennyb82 says: Jul 12, 2013 2:02 PM

    The NFL should hold a contest to see which team can go the longest without an arrest. Then reward them somehow. Unfortunately, it looks like it is going to take some sort of incentive for guys to stay out of trouble. Why not add a sportsmanship award…if hockey can have one then football can. Just a couple ideas to ice the NFL’s black eye…

  47. nesportsfan0428 says: Jul 12, 2013 2:03 PM

    “Here’s my free advice – if cops don’t like you in a certain area, you’d better steer clear. That probably goes for everyone, but especially people that punch cops”

    Thats good advice. If cops don’t like you, then it’s acceptable for them to routinely violate your civil liberties.

    ===========================

    Believe me I’m not Pats fan…. but that is just not correct.

    No Superbowl victories, yes.

    But, 2 AFC titles, and 7 AFCE titles….

    Brady has won 2 MVPs in that time frame

    They had an undefeated regular season.

    There are very few teams that wouldn’t trade their last 8 years for the Pats last seven years…. only 6 to be exact….

  49. starderup says: Jul 12, 2013 2:18 PM

    How is it with an organization with around 6,000 employees that the jail counter rarely goes over 10 or 12 days without an arrest?
    Nice going, NFL. Your players sure are role models.

    I’m not even a patriots fan and I’m already getting tired of these kind of comments. This “patriot way” crap… In the last 6 years they had an undefeated regular season and 2 Super Bowl appearances. The fact that they didn’t win those Super Bowls doesn’t mean they’ve done nothing since spygate. How many Super Bowl appearances for Detroit? Zero… Browns? Zero… The Bills haven’t seen the playoffs since ’99… To me, the patriot haters are just sad, those people at the bottom who love seeing the guy on top get “knocked off”.. Again, I’m not a pats fan. I’m just tired if the sad and poorly thought out insults being thrown up as a post instead of a well thought out comment…

    ******************************************

    A breathalyzer has error codes on it, one of which will tell the operator that the sample was too small/the user didn’t blow hard enough. The officer can ask you to re-blow as much as he/she wants as long as they are getting an user error. Most cops will give you 2 or three times to blow correctly (people try to beat the system all the time by not blowing hard enough) then they will take you in under suspicion of DUI. Once they get you in the station for this they will give you a blood test or urine test to get your BAC. If this wasn’t done by the arresting officers then they really have no leg to stand on in court, especially if there is no video that clearly shows an intoxicated Denard. I can see the DUI getting tossed, however the interaction with the law is where the violation of probation can come into play. That said, if the DUI gets tossed I can easily see the violation getting ignored as well.

    Nothing except go 75-20 (79%) in the regular season. Better than every other team in the league (next closest is Green Bay – 66-30). They were also 46-14 in non-division games (best in the league), so it’s not just because of a weak division.

    They also went to 3 AFC champinships and won 2 and went to 2 Super Bowls.

    So nothing much.

    Most of of the police officers I have encountered were decent people and acted professional. BUT, I met a few cops that are pathetic and like to push people around and make jerks look nice people. Something like the wife didn’t give him any the night before and he had to take it out on someone.

    There was even a time when someone needed to call 911 for me, but I got a lot of c r a p from the cop. Seriousy. Maybe his donut break got interrupted.

    ttommytom,
    I know you are or were an officer. Thanks for the facts.

    To the person who said the comment about public opinion, yes people hate being tried in the court of public opinion. Who wouldn’t? But Dennard hasn’t made his own statement, just made a statement through a reporter who had a source. And don’t most people want innocent people to claim their innocence or they say they are silent so they must be guilty?

    I wanted him gone yesterday, but I think I was just overwrought. If he was drunk and it’s proven, definitely they should dump him. But this isn’t as open and shut as it looked yesterday.

    I’ll repeat what others have said.

    Police officers take care of their own.

    He was driving in the same city where he went to college and where he was convicted of assaulting an officer

    It doesn’t take a big leap of faith to think they knew who they were pulling over

    Then he blows a brethalyzer twice and it registers a legal BAC – but they don’t seek a blood test.

    I’m not saying he wasn’t guilty of something here – just saying you have to wonder if he was being targeted.

    The people who think they “can’t win without cheating” are going to be in full denial about that.

    I hope he is innocent of this…I just exchanged my Hernandez jersey for Dennards

    Has anybody considered the police dash camera and audio? Look at that and we will all know who is truthful. That’s the way it is now. Have to audio and video record everything we do in life to prove who is telling the truth since lying has the advantage.

    He wasn’t charged with DUI,,,he was charged with suspicion ,,not based on the fields tests,,but becasue he crossed the yellow line. Then he was charged with failing to comply with an officer. Plus crossing the yellow line. The reason they didn’t do a blood test is that he passed the field tests..and passed the breath test. It may have been pot not liquor. This is a case of the video rolling on the patrol unit,,he passes,,so they have to charge him with something..to COVER their A**. Pretty straight forward. Most of your SPORTO-Heads..never read the news. They are arresting people like me and YOU for doing something as simple as WATCHING the cops arresting a person. That our mere presence or watching is “interfering with police duties”..just watching is a crime now.

    15 arrests since Belichick became Head Coach… I’m sure that’s is really low by comparison to the rest of the NFL …2000-2013 Better than most!

    Give him a break, he just “misinterpreted” the DUI rules like Belicheat “misunderstood” illegally videotaping opponents.

    We’ll all admit it, one of the best REGULAR SEASON teams in history. However, the cycle of winning and losing hits all teams eventually. (See Lakers, Celtics) They will not recover from the devastating offseason and this team will be on the down cycle for several years with the continued aging of the QB. 2 or 3 years as a .500 team fighting for a playoff spot. Average defense with an offense severely depleted of talent at the skill positions. It was a good run!

    That’s right dude…..the patriot way of complete dominance in the last decade or so and counting. We love our Pats and their Way. We owe no one any explanations. We kick ass and take no prisoners. Would be nice to win a Super Bowl every year, but have to admit we come closer then any other teams. And for all you waiting for Brady to retire….we have mallet with his rocket arm ready. So all u haters remember the Patriot Way while your teams are getting beat up on every year. We in New England will still be supporting our Pats.!!

    All of you are imbeciles that are saying this happened because of some corrupt culture in NE. First, Dennard is a moron for not taking advantage of the ride services offered by the NFL. Second, maybe he saw what the Broncos execs, who are older, but apparently not wiser, than him have been up to and thought that this was acceptable behavior.

    For alk you morons saying he should have steered clesr of Nebraska that’s a little hard to do if you have to fulfill community service requirements under your previous sentence

    “Seems like it could be a plausible explanation. Just because he’s been in in trouble before doesn’t exonerate the cop from any wrong doing.”

    A guy who is in trouble like that and an NFL player does not go out looking for trouble like that. Unheard of

    Patriots win totals since 2001: 11, 9,14,14,10, 12, 16, 11, 10, 14, 13, 12

    People that hate the Pats…are people that are jealous.

    Pats fans, embrace the hate!

    First, you lose the “benefit of the doubt” when you committed your first crime. So don’t start crying like a baby when you get a pulled over at 2am in the morning, weaving on the road and you smell like alcohol….in the same county you committed the first crime in…you moron of a person. You created this situation by putting yourself in this position.

  84. patsfan13 says: Jul 13, 2013 5:39 AM

    The police run plate numbers before pulling someone over. So the officer would have known it was Dennard he was pulling over.

    When did a Superbowl victory get watered down to just reaching the Superbowl?
    My Bills could have been a dynasty back in the day and i didn’t even know it?

    I Think the Bills were a dynasty. They were some great seasons.

    Pats fan.

    Man-o-man a lot of these posts are stupid and/or uninformed! Re: Dennard. We don’t know what happened here, it’s possible he was stupid and if so he’ll be charged, convicted, his parole will be vacated and he’ll be released by NE. If what we’ve heard here from Ian’s report from Dennard’s camp is true and he’s being squeezed by the Lincoln police, he’s got money, hopefully a decent lawyer can get him off – no conviction, parole still in place – he should stay on the team.
    As for all you whining about him convicted of hitting a police officer, you should get the facts before posting comments. Yes, he did hit a police officer. But he did so when the police officer was undercover, and had not identified himself to Dennard. Was Dennard stupid fighting in a bar – yes – but it’s not the police-attacking event you think it was. Analyses I’ve seen by those with legal background said that with Dennard’s absence of a previous record, and hitting an unidentified undercover cop, that most people would have gotten probation only. The fact that Dennard is spending some time in jail next spring is probably because they want to make an example and not let it look like athletes get special treatment.
    As for all of you whining about the NE Spygate thing – it’s over, get a life.

    All African American males are TARGETS, any one of us. No ONE man or boy that has skin of brown or dark tinge is a target to be harassed. Not saying this guy is innocent, I’m saying u gotta be smarter than that my brotha!
