Nebraska’s Cook to be charged
Husker setter scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday
LINCOLN, Neb. -- Prosecutors say Nebraska volleyball star Lauren Cook will be charged after hitting two people on a motorcycle and then fleeing in her SUV.
Lancaster County Deputy Attorney Patrick Condon declined to say what charge or charges Cook would face. Her arraignment is Tuesday.
Cook was arrested Oct. 30 on suspicion of leaving the scene of an injury accident and ticketed for driving on a suspended license. The driver of the motorcycle broke his leg, and his passenger was scraped up.
Lincoln Emergency Communications released audio of Cook's 911 call on Monday. Cook tells the operator she wants to make sure the motorcyclists are OK and that she doesn't want to be charged for a hit-and-run.
Cook has had six speeding tickets since 2007 in Nebraska.
