Jury Selection Begins in Darren Delone Trial
Jury selection has begun in the trial of a former Husker football player. Darren Delone is accused of assaulting a University of Oklahoma spirit squad member. Adam Merritt, a freshman member of the Ruf/Neks Spirit Group, says Delone slammed him into a brick wall before Nebraska's game against Oklahoma last November. Delone's attorney says the incident could have been accidental because the players were practicing at a high speed on damp grass. Delone is charged with assault and battery. He could get up to 5 years in prison if convicted.
