New England Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard reported to the Lancaster County Adult Detention Facility in Lincoln Saturday morning to begin his 60-day sentence for a 2012 assault on a police officer.
The 24-year-old former Husker will have to serve at least 35 days.
A judge sentenced Dennard last April to two years' probation, 30 days in jail and community service for assaulting an officer and resisting arrest outside a Lincoln bar days before he was chosen in the NFL Draft. The judge later doubled Dennard's jail time after he was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving, which was dismissed in a plea agreement.
