LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Nebraska star volleyball player Lauren Cook was arrested on suspicion of leaving the scene of an injury accident and ticketed for driving under suspension after an accident that left a motorcyclist with a broken leg.
Lincoln police say Cook clipped a motorcyclist who was stopped at the side of a road shortly before noon Sunday. Police found Cook about a half-mile away, her 2007 Toyota 4Runner disabled because of a shredded front tire.
She was in Lancaster County Jail for three hours before an unidentified person posted $500 bond. She is scheduled to make a court appearance Monday afternoon.
Lauren Cook, daughter of Nebraska women's volleyball coach John Cook, has been ticketed six times for speeding since 2007.
