(CBS) BOSTON - Alfonzo Dennard, cornerback for the NFL's New England Patriots, was arrested early Thursday morning on suspicion of DUI in Lincoln, Neb., CBS Boston reports.
Dennard was reportedly pulled over around 2 a.m. after officers observed him straddling a lane. He was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence as well as a driving infraction. According to the station, he refused a chemical test at the scene.
The station reports Dennard was cited and released, so no mug shot was taken. Police in Lincoln say he is scheduled to appear in court on August 12.
According to CBS Boston, this is the second time Dennard has been arrested in the last 15 months. Prior to being drafted last year, the 23-year-old was arrested after allegedly punching a police officer in the face at a Lincoln bar. He was convicted in February and received two years of probation, a 30-day jail sentence and 100 hours of community service. His jail sentence is reportedly scheduled to begin March 1, 2014, during the NFL off-season.
Dennard's arrest comes as former Patriots tight-end Aaron Hernandez sits in jail on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of his friend, Odin Lloyd. Hernandez was arrested on June 26 and the Patriots released him from the team just hours later.
On Monday, Patriots owner Robert Kraft broke his silence about Hernandez's arrest and release from the team.
"You can be sure we'll be looking at our procedures and auditing how we do things," Kraft said of the Patriots moving forward.
