Second-year Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard has a July 31 court date where prosecutors will push for a judge to revoke his probation and take him into immediate custody.
Dennard, 23, was charged with drunken driving, refusal of a chemical test and one traffic infraction. The arrest is grounds for ending his probation, a two-year sentence received following an assault conviction in February.
The Patriots report to training camp July 25 and veterans, including Dennard, begin practice the next day.
Last week, Dennard was arrested in Lincoln, Neb., when his vehicle was spotting crossing over the center line.
Dennard claims he did not fail a field sobriety test and was not asked to take a blood test after being arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence.
The former Cornhusker was pulled over about 2 a.m. Thursday and arrested. Dennard's representatives said that he tried to blow into a Breathalyzer at least twice and the attempts were not considered sufficient enough to register a reading.
In April, Dennard was convicted of one count of assaulting a uniformed police officer and was sentenced to 30 days in jail, two years' probation and 100 hours of law enforcement-related community service. He is scheduled to serve the jail sentence in March of 2014.
The Patriots issued a statement following the arrest in which the team said it was "extremely disappointed" to learn of Dennard's arrest. The 2012 seventh-round pick is listed as the starting right cornerback on the Patriots' depth chart.
