Deverell Biggs Charged With DUI & Leaving The Scene

Eric Francis

Nebraska junior point-guard in trouble after alcohol related incident.

Nebraska basketball player Deverell Biggs out of Omaha Central has been cited on suspicion of driving under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident. Biggs, out of Omaha Central is currently redshirting after attending Seward County (Kan.) Community College last season, where he was a first-team All-American.

Here are the details according to Omaha.com:

Biggs was waiting for the stoplight to change at Howard and 15th Streets about 1:40 a.m. Sunday, according to an Omaha police report. A Bellevue man stopped behind him, also facing west, told police Biggs remained parked in his Chevrolet Suburban through several light changes.

Biggs then backed his car into the Bellevue man’s Mercedes, got out of his car and briefly talked with the man but drove away before the two could exchange information, according to police.

Police found Biggs and his vehicle near 30th and Lake Streets. His vehicle was impounded about 2:20 a.m.

Biggs, who turns 21 in February, had a blood-alcohol content of .134, according to the report. The legal limit for drivers 21 or older in Nebraska is .08. Police estimated damage to the Bellevue man’s Mercedes at about $1,500.

Nebraska Head Coach Tim Miles learned about the situation right before the game against UTEP on Sunday night and had this to say:

"I told Deverell we would meet on the 26th and handle it,’’ Miles said. "I’m obviously greatly disappointed in the report and Deverell’s actions.

"I’ll gather more information before making a decision on disciplinary action.’’

It sounds like this won't be the last you will hear about this story. As always Corn Nation will keep you posted as new developments unfold.

Editor Comments - Jon J:

Two things about this:

1 - You gotta hand it to the kid for going Biggs and hitting a Mercedes, say, instead of a 2003 Subaru Wagon.

2 - Why do you stay sitting behind a guy for several light changes? A guy recently did this while he was behind me, but I was stuck on ice on a slight incline. It was embarrassing. I had traction control turned off. Was it icy on early Sunday morning in Omaha?
