LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A former Nebraska football player and his girlfriend have been sent to prison on drug charges.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1E9a0Is ) 26-year-old Benjamin Martin was sentenced Thursday to more than 16 years in prison for possessing a firearm to assist drug trafficking and conspiring to sell methamphetamine. Twenty-six-year-old Audrey Glenn received 10 years in prison for conspiring to sell meth.

Martin was found asleep in his car last December and authorities found bullets, a hidden rifle and meth in the vehicle.

Glenn was arrested after a recorded phone call with Martin led authorities to a storage unit. The unit contained more meth.

Martin began playing defensive tackle for the Huskers in 2007, but his college career ended later when he was given a medical hardship scholarship.
