Two Husker football players could be some of the first people in Lincoln cited for violating pandemic restrictions, authorities say.

On Sunday, Lincoln police cited 21-year-old Corbin Ruth and 19-year-old Riley Moses for maintaining a disorderly house after being called to their home near 14th and Fletcher on a loud party complaint.

LPD told Channel 8 Eyewitness News there were more than 10 people in the home, some of whom were underage. The report was forwarded to the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department to determine whether a pandemic enforcement citation will also be issued to Ruth and Moses.

Officers had been called to the home on May 7 for a similar complaint, at which time they “educated” the tenants about gathering restrictions. Neighbors told Channel 8 Eyewitness News there are frequently parties at the home.

Pat Lopez with the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department said, to date, she has only issued one isolation order for violating COVID-19 health restrictions. She said she couldn’t comment further because the order was against an individual.

Moses is a redshirt freshman from Fairmont. Ruth is a junior from Malcolm.

The Nebraska Athletic Department did not immediately return a request for comment.
