LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A surgeon whose medical license has been suspended has been accused of impaired driving and of hit-and-run in Lincoln.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1cxKTIa ) that 52-year-old Scott Strasburger, who played football for Nebraska from 1981 to 1984, was arrested Tuesday. His attorney in an unrelated civil case didn’t immediately return a call Wednesday from The Associated Press.

Police say Strasburger crashed into a parked vehicle on Tuesday afternoon and drove off, and then crashed into another vehicle stopped in traffic just a few minutes later. The driver of that vehicle told police she recognized Strasburger and suspected he was high on drugs.

Police later contacted Strasburger at his home.

Strasburger’s medical license was suspended for six months late last year on accusations that he’d been practicing medicine while impaired.
