Former Husker Running Back Jaylin Bradley Arrested

According to the Omaha World Herald, former Nebraska running back Jaylin Bradley remained in the Lancaster County Jail on Monday after he was arrested over the weekend on suspicion of second-degree domestic assault.

A jail official confirmed Bradley was booked into jail just after 1 a.m. Sunday and had a preliminary court hearing set for 2 p.m. Monday. He was released in the afternoon after posting $1,000 bail.

According to a Lincoln Police Department report, police were contacted just before 9 p.m. Saturday to a south Lincoln address regarding a disturbance a male and a female. The 19-year-old female, who described herself as Bradley’s ex-girlfriend, said she attempted to speak to Bradley while he was in his car. He refused, and twice allegedly hit her with his car — a 2018 Dodge Charger. Once, he was going 5 miles per hour and hit her with his bumper. The second time, the car left a tire burn mark on her leg. Bradley was then arrested for second-degree assault.

Bradley left the Nebraska football team in late January and put his name in the NCAA transfer portal. He had not announced a new school before this weekend’s arrest.

Bradley had a record-breaking football career at Bellevue West, which led to a Husker scholarship as part of the 2017 recruiting class. After rushing for 93 yards as a true freshman, Bradley redshirted in 2018 and carried the ball just twice in 2019.
