The hearing for Husker volleyball star Harper Murray’s DUI charge has been rescheduled for June

LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) – An attorney representing Husker volleyball star Harper Murray appeared in court Wednesday for an arraignment.

The hearing on Murray’s two charges of driving under the influence and possession of a fake ID was largely uneventful as the judge ordered another hearing on June 24.

Court records show Murray was not present at Wednesday’s hearing, but the judge ordered her to appear at the next hearing.

On April 5, Murray was cited on suspicion of driving under the influence, possession of a fake ID and careless driving. The 19-year-old was arrested near 16th Street and Antelope Valley Parkway around 12:45 p.m.

Lincoln police said a breath test showed her BAC was 0.169, more than twice the legal limit in Nebraska. During the check, she also turned out to be in possession of a false ID, the police said.

Murray was cited and released, and nearly a month later, on May 2, two misdemeanor charges were filed against her.

Following her DUI citation, Nebraska Athletics announced that Murray would be suspended from the volleyball team’s spring match in Kearney on May 4.

Murray is also suspected in a shoplifting incident at the Scheels in Lincoln. A Lincoln Police incident report shows that five rings valued at $12.99 each were taken from the store on May 2. Posts on social media appear to link Murray to the thefts, but Lincoln police have not yet filed a report or shared the name of a suspect.

The University of Nebraska told 10/11 News it is aware of the allegation and is gathering more information about the incident.
