Husker football’s Myles Farmer gets DUI citation

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A Nebraska football defensive leader was driving under the influence on Sunday, Lincoln Police say.

Around 12:30 a.m., Husker defensive back Myles Farmer was pulled over near 10th and P Streets after not using a turn signal.

The officer saw signs of impairment and conducted a sobriety test, police said.

Farmer had a .123 blood alcohol content, according to police.  He was cited on suspicion of DUI and failing to use a turn signal.

During a Tuesday press conference, interim head coach Mickey Joseph said Farmer would be suspended for the Michigan game.

“We always say, ‘Protect the team,’ and I’m very disappointed in Myles,” he said. “And Myles is going to make this right. He’s going to do some things to get back in good graces with this football team.”

Joseph said Farmer would be reevaluated after this week.

“He’s a good kid; he made a mistake,” Joseph said.

Farmer has racked up 31 tackles and one interception this season.
