Alfonzo Dennard was arrested for suspicion for DUI, but a source close to the New England Patriots cornerback refutes that charge via Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Rapoport's report says that Dennard blew twice into the breathalyzer and both times was below the limit.

The officer then, per the report, told Dennard that he did not blow hard enough into the breathalyzer.

It will be interesting to see whether or not the Patriots, who were "disappointed" by Dennard's arrest will stand by the cornerback, who at least has someone close to him proclaiming his innocence.
