Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard is back in trouble, having been arrested July 11 on suspicion of driving under the influence. But despite his arrest, the Pats have no intentions of cutting the cornerback, according to a report by the Boston Globe.

Dennard is on probation for assaulting a police officer in Lincoln, Neb., in April of 2012. Nebraska prosecutors are moving to revoke Dennard’s probation, which could land him in prison. Dennard’s camp is disputing the charges, saying the 23-year old passed a field sobriety test and twice blew into a breathalyzer, registering below the legal limit both times.

The arrest comes on the heels of the arrest of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez on charges of first-degree murder in the killing of Odin Lloyd.

Dennard is coming off an impressive rookie season for the Patriots, in which played ten games, starting six, collecting 35 tackles and intercepting three passes.

He is serving two years probation and is due to serve a 30-day prison sentence in March 2014.
