Nebraska DUI Leads to Suspension from Huskers Football Team

The University of Nebraska football team has suspended starting defensive tackle Baker Steinkuhler following an arrest for DUI in Lincoln. Police say the 21-year old was stopped around 1:45 Tuesday morning for driving without his headlights and for making a turn without signaling. Steinkuhler had a blood alcohol content of 0.115 percent. He is of legal drinking age but the threshold for intoxication while driving in Nebraska is 0.08%. Steinkuhler was booked for suspicion of drunk driving in Nebraska and is set to appear in Lancaster County court on January 4.

Coach Bo Pelini said that Steinkuhler will not join the football team for the Holiday Bowl in San Diego on December 30. The 6’6″, 290-pound Steinkuhler has played a key defensive role for the Huskers this season, starting all 13 games and collecting 46 tackles and 3-1/2 sacks.
