LINCOLN, Neb. — Nebraska prosecutors are moving to have probation revoked for New England Patriots’ defensive back Alfonzo Dennard.

Online court records say an arraignment on the revocation motion is scheduled for July 31.

The 23-year-old Dennard was pulled over in Lincoln, Neb., early Thursday morning and is charged with first-offense drunken driving, refusing a chemical test and a traffic infraction.

It was Dennard’s second arrest in 15 months. The former Cornhuskers star hasn’t served a 30-day jail sentence for assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest outside a Lincoln bar on April 21, 2012. That term is scheduled to begin next March. He also was sentenced to two years of probation.

His attorney from the 2012 case didn’t immediately return a call Tuesday from The Associated Press.
