Alfonzo Dennard Disputes DUI Charge

Otto Greule Jr

The Lincoln Police Department says Dennard didn't blow hard enough in their test, and may not have asked him to take a blood test.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network talked to an associate of former Nebraska cornerback Alfonzo Dennard and reports that Dennard didn't refuse a field sobriety test during his DUI arrest early on Thursday morning.

In fact, he may have actually passed it.

First thing to keep in mind is that this is not Dennard making these statements, it's someone on Dennard's behalf. But this statement does sync with the Lincoln Journal-Star's report:

Dennard, 23, was driving west on Normal Boulevard in a 2011 Honda Accord just before 2 a.m. Thursday when a sergeant pulled him over near 52nd Street because he was straddling lanes, Lincoln Police Officer Katie Flood said.

The sergeant arrested Dennard, who is on probation for punching a police officer in April 2012, on suspicion of DUI, refusing a chemical test and straddling lanes.

Dennard, who was taken to detox but not jailed, blew too softly during an alcohol breath test, even though the sergeant told him twice to blow hard into the machine, Flood said.

It will be interesting to follow what charges end up being filed against Dennard.
