LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -Nebraska offensive lineman Andy Christensen was arrested early Saturday and accused of sexually assaulting a woman at a bar. Nebraska coach Bo Pelini said the junior has been suspended from the team.
A 23-year-old woman told police that Christensen approached her from behind and reached underneath her clothing.
Christensen was arrested outside the Brass Rail bar. He is accused of first-degree sexual assault, resisting arrest and failure to comply, Police Capt. Joseph Wright said. Wright said it was also unclear if Christensen had been drinking. Prosecutors are still to decide on formal charges and Christensen would be arraigned Monday, Wright added.
It was unclear whether Christensen had a lawyer. A phone call by The Associated Press to the jail where he was being held was not answered.
Pelini said he will review Christensen's status when more information is available.
``The charges against Andy are serious in nature and these types of actions will not be tolerated,'' he said.
Christensen started the first three games at left guard last fall before a season-ending knee injury.
