Former Nebraska defensive lineman Cameron Meredith has been ticketed on suspicion of misdemeanor assault for allegedly breaking a man's jaw and eye socket during a fight last month.

Meredith and his friends got into a confrontation with another group of people in downtown Lincoln about 2 a.m. June 16.

Meredith is accused of striking a 20-year-old man who was trying to break up the fight.

A message The Associated Press left on Meredith's cell phone wasn't returned.

As a senior last season, Meredith made 53 tackles and had five sacks. He appeared in 56 games in his career, setting a school record, and started his final 41 games.
