Husker quarterback ticketed

Lord, NU volleyball player cited for disturbing peace

October 15, 2002


— Nebraska quarterback Jammal Lord and Cornhusker volleyball and basketball player Greichaly Cepero were ticketed for disturbing the peace.

Officers were called to Lord's Lincoln apartment about 3 a.m. Sunday after neighbors complained of hearing a loud noise.

When officers arrived, Cepero started screaming for officers "to take her out of there," police official Katherine Finnell said.

Police said Cepero was grabbing at officers, who also cited her for failure to obey a police order.

Lord and Cepero appeared to be drunk and were taken by officers to a detoxification center where they were later released. Both are 21.

Nebraska football coach Frank Solich said some form of team discipline may be necessary.

"We'll investigate what had transpired and make a decision based on the information we get," Solich said.

Disturbing the peace is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a $500 fine and six months in jail. Failure to obey a police order is also a misdemeanor and carries the same penalty.

Lord, a junior from Bayonne, N.J., is scheduled to appear in court Nov. 7. Cepero, a senior setter from Puerto Rico, is to appear Nov. 13.
