Community Service For Niles Paul

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ Nebraska football player Niles Paul will do

community service for his conviction for underage drinking.

The senior wide receiver requested community service in lieu of

a $400 fine given to him by Lancaster County Judge Jean Lovell on

June 25.

The 20-year-old Paul pleaded guilty to being a minor in

possession of alcohol in connection with a May 28 incident. A

charge of public urination was dropped.

Lincoln police have said an officer spotted the 20-year-old Paul

urinating on a fence. A preliminary breath test measured Paul's

blood-alcohol at .104.

Paul pleaded guilty to reckless driving following an incident in

spring 2009. He was fined $150, and he went to pretrial diversion

for a charge of minor in possession.
