22 year old former Cornhusker Alfonso Dennard was arrested last night on suspicion of assaulting a Lincoln, Nebraska police officer.

According to the Omaha World Herald:

Lincoln police said Dennard, 22, was fighting with another man outside a bar near 14th and O Streets about 2:15 a.m.

When officers attempted to intervene, police said, Dennard allegedly pushed and then punched one officer in the face.

It took four police offices to take Dennard into custody, according to police.

The injured officer is a four-year Police Department veteran. He suffered a minor injury to the left side of his face, but did not seek medical treatment, police said.

It goes without saying…this is a bad look for Alfonso just days before the NFL draft. The ex Nebraska cornerback is projected as a 2nd or 3rd round pick. Some NFL analysts predict this event could cost him up to a round in the draft.

While at Nebraksa, Dennard had no character issues of record besides his ejection from the 2012 Capital One Bowl.

Referees ejected Dennard from the 2012 Capital One Bowl for fighting with South Carolina wide receiver Alshon Jeffrey. “I just got frustrated,” Dennard told The World-Herald in February. “We, as a team, lost our focus. The game just got out of hand. … I take that blame. I’m not that type of person. I think (the NFL teams) know that.”
