Former Nebraska Cornhusker standout cornerback Alfonzo Dennard is in trouble again, this time for violating his probation that he received for the incident that dropped him in the NFL draft, where he was drafted in 2012 by the New England Patriots in round seven.

In April 2012 Dennard was involved in an altercation with a student who was alleged to have shoved and off duty police officer who he was alleged to punch in that face. He was ultimately was charged with a third degree felony assault of a police officer and misdemeanor resisting arrest and was sentenced to probation.

According to court documents, the former Patriot violated his probation by testing positive for alcohol three times in a month period and missing one mandatory drug test all together. He was sentenced again last week to five day in jail, which he is reported to appear on Tuesday.

The majority of Dennard’s career has been with New England. He signed with the Arizona Cardinals in the offseason, but was cut by the Cards in July and has not signed with another team since. His five-day sentence with will exsend over the Christmas holiday.

Hopefully, his time away from his young family in jail and not signed to a team is the bottom for him and he can rebound from it.
