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.


According to oddsmakers from online sports book, the Patriots remain 9/1 to win the 2014 Super Bowl, which were the same odds that were in place after Hernandez was charged with murder. The 49ers, meanwhile, are favored to win next year’s NFL title at 6/1, while the Broncos are 13/2 and the Seahawks are 8/1. The Packers are 12/1, the Falcons are 14/1 and both the Texans and Saints are 18/1, respectively.
