Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban, here in the victory parade following last month’s national title, now has to deal with the arrests of four players.
Four Alabama football players were arrested Monday, according to information posted on the Tuscaloosa County Sherrif’s Office web site.
Three of those players – safety Eddie Williams, linebacker Tyler Hayes and defensive end D.J. Pettway – were charged with second degree robbery. A fourth, H-back Brent Calloway, was charged with fraudulent use of a credit/debit card.
All four players’ mug shots were posted on the Web site jailbase.com.
Williams, Hayes, Pettway and Calloway all played as freshmen for Alabama’s 2012 national championship team, albeit in minor roles.
An Alabama spokesman said the school was aware of the arrests but could not immediately comment on the charges. More details on the arrests were not immediately available.
On Sunday, Williams was arrested and charged with possession of a pistol without a license according to the website BamaOnLine. The charge also is listed at jailbase.com.
Calloway also was arrested in 2011 by Tuscaloosa police on second-degree possession of marijuana. At the time, Alabama assistant athletic director Jeff Purinton told al.com that any punishment would be handled internally.
