New England Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard has reported to a Lincoln jail to begin his 60-day term for a 2012 assault on a police officer.
According to the Associated Press, Dennard reported to the Lancaster County Adult Detention Facility Saturday morning.
Dennard will have to serve at least 35 days in jail, after credit for good behavior and three days already served.
Dennard was arrested for hitting a cop and resisting arrest outside a Lincoln bar just days before the Patriots drafted him in the seventh round. In April, he was sentenced to two years’ probation, 30 days in jail and community service.
Dennard was again arrested in July on suspicion of drunken driving. The judge extended his probation to three years and doubled the jail time. The drunken driving charge was later dismissed after Dennard pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of refusal to submit to a chemical test.
Dennard finished this season with 40 tackles (34 solo, 6 assists) and one interception.
