The charges stem from an incident just days before the NFL draft, in which Dennard reportedly struck an officer outside a bar in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Dennard played corner for the Nebraska Cornhuskers from 2008-2011 and earned Big Ten First Team honors his senior season. He was selected in the seventh round, 224th overall, by New England in April’s draft.
The 22-year-old Dennard signed a four-year contract with the Patriots last week.
A follow-up court date has yet to be determined.
