Patriots’ Dennard in trouble again

Alfonzo Dennard of the New England Patriots was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving early Thursday morning, the Omaha World-Herald first reported.

Dennard, 24, was allegedly straddling the center line at 2 a.m. when he was pulled over in Lincoln, Neb., where he attended school and played cornerback for the Cornhuskers.

The legal woes aren’t new to the Patriots — or Dennard.

He was convicted of one count of assaulting a uniformed police officer in April of 2012, for which the penalty was 30 days in jail, two years probation and 100 hours of law enforcement-related community service.

His arrest could lead the county court judge who allowed a delayed jail sentence to begin next March, to reconsider. Judge Stephanie Stacy permitted the delay to avoid costing Dennard, a cornerback, any practice or game time with the Patriots.

A projected first- or second-round pick coming out of Nebraska, Dennard’s arrest contributed to him sliding almost all the way out of the draft. The Patriots picked him 224th overall, in the seventh round.

While he played for the Patriots, Aaron Hernandez was arrested on June 26 and charged with murder in the killing of Odin Lloyd. Since then, the team has released him.
