LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A father has sued a former University of Nebraska football player who hosted a fundraiser for the man’s son, claiming he didn’t receive money raised at the November event.

Dan Walker filed the lawsuit last week against P.J. Smith, safety for the Huskers from 2009 to 2012, and Scott Wuethrich. Walker alleges the men withheld most donations made on his 11-year-old-son’s behalf, who’s recovering after being hit by a truck in October.

Walker claims Smith and Wuethrich kept all donations except for $1,031, which he says he used to buy Christmas gifts for his six kids. The lawsuit seeks compensation for all money raised at the fundraiser or later by selling donated items.

Smith, Wuethrich and lawyers declined to comment or didn’t return calls from the Lincoln Journal Star (https://bit.ly/1EHOLxn ).
