Jaylin Bradley

Former Nebraska running back Jaylin Bradley. 

Former Nebraska running back Jaylin Bradley was arrested over the weekend on suspicion of second-degree domestic assault. Bradley was released from Lancaster County Jail on Monday afternoon after posting $1,000 cash bail.

A jail official confirmed that Bradley was booked into jail just after 1 a.m. Sunday and had a preliminary court hearing set for 2 p.m. Monday.

According to a Lincoln Police Department report, police were contacted just before 9 p.m. Saturday to a south Lincoln address regarding a disturbance involving 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 mph 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.
