LINCOLN, Neb. – Nebraska defensive tackle Baker Steinkuhler has been sentenced to nine months of probation after pleading guilty to driving under the influence.
A Lancaster County judge on Tuesday also fined Steinkuhler $400 and revoked his driver's license for 60 days.
Police stopped Steinkuhler early Dec. 7 because he was driving his 1993 Ford Explorer in downtown Lincoln without headlights and he failed to signal a turn. Steinkuhler's blood-alcohol content measured 0.115 percent, exceeding the legal limit of 0.08 percent.
Coach Bo Pelini suspended Steinkuhler from last week's Holiday Bowl against Washington. The sophomore started the Cornhuskers' first 13 games. He made 46 tackles, including 3.5 sacks.
