LINCOLN, Neb. -- Campus police cited Nebraska quarterback Sam Keller Thursday for disturbing the peace after he allegedly yelled profanities at a woman who took a parking spot he was waiting for in a campus parking garage.

The woman told campus police Keller got out of his car, yelled and threw a plastic cup at her car, said University Police Capt. Carl Oestmann.

Keller then left the area, "evidently looking for another parking spot," Oestmann said. Police later contacted Keller and cited him for disturbing the peace, Oestmann said.

Keith Mann said Thursday evening that the football staff is aware of the incident, but said the Athletic Department would have no immediate comment.

Keller transferred to Nebraska from Arizona State last year, sitting out 2006 because of transfer rules. He'll be a fifth-year senior this season, and coach Bill Callahan has said he will compete with Joe Ganz and Beau Davis for the starting job.

Disturbing the peace is a Class III misdemeanor, punishable by up to three months in jail and a $500 fine.

Keller will appear in court April 26.
