Patriots' Alfonzo Dennard convicted of assaulting police officer
New England Patriots rookie cornerback Alfonzo Dennard has been convicted of assaulting a police officer, which is a felony.
The incident took place just a week before the 2012 NFL Draft. Dennard, a projected second-round pick, was arrested on suspicion of third-degree assault on an officer. Dennard, a star at Nebraska, fell to the seventh round, where he was selected by the Patriots. He started seven games in 2012, including both playoff games.
Lori Pilger of the Lincoln Journal Star reports Dennard faces up to six years in prison. He will be sentenced April 11.
