Nebraska tight end arrested


— Nebraska tight end Hunter Teafatiller faces a September court date after being arrested on suspicion of drunken driving for a second time in three months.

Teafatiller, 20, was stopped by a Nebraska State Patrol trooper early Saturday for driving without headlights. He was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving, minor in possession of alcohol, no insurance and no registration. His blood-alcohol level was 0.097, patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins said. The legal limit for people over 21 is 0.08.

Lincoln police ticketed Teafatiller on suspicion of drunken driving, negligent driving, improper registration and minor in possession after a May 26 accident in which he hit a culvert. According to the accident report, his blood-alcohol level was 0.123.
