LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - New England Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard has admitted to violating probation by drinking alcohol and driving in Nebraska in July.
Dennard's admission came during a Monday appearance in Lancaster County District Court in Lincoln.
A judge will announce at a disposition hearing Dec. 5 whether his probation will be revoked. He remains free until then.
The probation violation stems from Dennard's arrest on suspicion of drunken driving in Lincoln on July 11. He's set to appear in court Oct. 8 to face misdemeanor charges of first-offense DUI and refusing a chemical test.
Dennard, who played college football at Nebraska, was placed on two years of probation for assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest outside a Lincoln bar in 2012.
Neither Dennard nor his attorney commented after Monday's hearing.
