Nebraska men's basketball player Deverell Biggs has been cited on suspicion of driving under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident in Omaha last weekend.

According to a police report, Biggs backed his Chevrolet Suburban into a Bellevue man's vehicle about 1:35 a.m. Sunday. Biggs spoke briefly to the other driver and drove off.

Police stopped Biggs several miles away. His blood-alcohol content measured .134, over the legal limit of .08.

The 20-year-old Biggs also was cited for minor in possession and unsafe backing.

Biggs is sitting out as a redshirt junior this season. Coach Tim Miles said in a text message Wednesday he's ``greatly disappointed in the report and Deverell's actions.'' No decision has been made on disciplinary action.

There was no answer on Biggs' cell phone.

Statement from Nebraska Coach Tim Miles:


"I'm obviously greatly disappointed in the report and Deverell's actions. I'll gather more information before making a decision on disciplinary action."
