Alfonzo Dennard (DEHN'-nurd) of the New England Patriots has been arrested and accused of driving drunk in Lincoln where he once starred as a Nebraska defensive back.

Lincoln police say 24-year-old Dennard was pulled over southeast of downtown Lincoln just before 2 a.m. Thursday. Lincoln police say Dennard failed a field sobriety test.

Police spokeswoman Katie Flood says Dennard was taken to a detoxification center but not jailed. Dennard also is accused of refusing a chemical test and a driving infraction. He has not been charged.

In April Dennard was sentenced to 30 days in jail and two years of probation for assaulting a police officer in Lincoln last year.

A phone listing for Dennard couldn't be found. His attorney didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press.
