    Ex-Husker Alfonzo Dennard arrested in cop assault

    Ex-Husker Alfonzo Dennard arrested in cop assault
    By Sam McKewon and Sam Womack
    WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITERS
    Published Saturday April 21, 2012

    Former Nebraska Husker football player Alfonzo Dennard was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a Lincoln police officer early Saturday.

    Lincoln police said Dennard, 22, was fighting with another man outside a bar near 14th and O Streets about 2:15 a.m.

    When officers attempted to intervene, police said, Dennard allegedly pushed and then punched one officer in the face.

    It took four police offices to take Dennard into custody, according to police.

    The injured officer is a four-year Police Department veteran. He suffered a minor injury to the left side of his face, but did not seek medical treatment, police said.

    Dennard was arrested on suspicion of third-degree assault on an officer and resisting arrest. He was also cited for third-degree assault in connection with the bar fight.

    He was expected to remain in jail over the weekend. A judge will likely set Dennard's bail amount at a Lancaster County Court hearing on Monday.

    An All-Big Ten corner last year despite injuries, Dennard is expected to be selected in next week's NFL Draft. He was a second-or-third-round prospect on most draft boards.

    The arrest could hurt Dennard's NFL draft stock, said Gil Brandt, senior draft analyst for NFL.com.

    "I don't remember this kid having any problems before at least that I knew about - but it'll probably cost him a round in the Draft," said Brandt, who will have Dennard ranked as his No. 74 overall player Monday. That's near the top of the third round.

    Referees ejected Dennard from the 2012 Capital One Bowl for fighting with South Carolina wide receiver Alshon Jeffrey. "I just got frustrated," Dennard told The World-Herald in February. "We, as a team, lost our focus. The game just got out of hand. ... I take that blame. I'm not that type of person. I think (the NFL teams) know that."

    I would beg to differ with your definition of "smart".

    Even if he is not this kind of person, and even if the fight with the patron or officer was not his fault, he has simply got to be smart enough not to put himself in that position. Particularly this close to the draft.

    Utterly stupid move on his part.

    Hope he's not related to former Ram, Preston.
