Flood said a final decision on the charges Dennard will face likely will be made by the Lincoln City Attorney's Office before the court date already assigned to Dennard, Aug. 12. The city prosecutor handling the case didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press.
It's unclear whether prosecutors will move to have Dennard's probation revoked. Lancaster County Attorney Joe Kelly didn't immediately return a message.
One week after his arrest last year, the Patriots drafted Dennard with the 224th pick overall.
Dennard sat out the first four games of his rookie season with a hamstring injury then came off the bench in the next two. He started seven of the last 10 regular-season games and both playoff games at cornerback.
