University Police said officers found Nebraska freshman safety Myles Farmer with a small amount of marijuana at the University Suites dorms around 11:30 p.m. Monday.
Two Nebraska football players were ticketed last week after a traffic stop in Lincoln.
About 8 p.m. Friday, police stopped a car driven by Marquel Dismuke, 21, because the vehicle didn’t have a front license plate, said Officer Angela Sands, a Lincoln police spokeswoman. Officers determined that Dismuke was driving on a suspended license and had a previous conviction for driving under suspension, Sands said.
Dismuke was cited on suspicion of driving under suspension and released, and the car was towed, Sands said.
A passenger in the car, fellow Husker Jeramiah Stovall, also 21, was found to be in possession of a small amount of marijuana, Sands said. Stovall was cited on suspicion of possessing less than an ounce of marijuana and released, Sands said.
The two were cooperative with officers, she said.
Dismuke, a junior from California, has 44 career tackles in 20 games. He’s perhaps a favorite to start at safety this season. Stovall, a graduate of Omaha Creighton Prep, is a walk-on defensive back who has primarily played special teams during his Husker career.
“We are aware of the incident and are addressing it,” a Nebraska athletics spokesperson said.
This is the third incident a Nebraska football player has had with law enforcement this offseason.
