The Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office has apparently confirmed that four Alabama football players have been arrested. All were 4- or 5-star players coming out of high school.
Tyler Hayes (second degree robbery), Dennis Pettway (second degree robbery), Eddie Williams (second degree robbery and fraudulent use of a credit card), and Brent Calloway (fraudulent use of a credit card) have all been busted and their mugshots revealed on jailbase.com.
A second degree robbery conviction in Alabama can carry a 20-year jail sentence.
UPDATE – Williams was also arrested for carrying a pistol without a license. That arrest was on Sunday, while his arrest for robbery and fraudulent use of a credit card came yesterday.
SIDENOTE — Last month while doing a guest bit on WJOX-FM in Birmingham I was asked about the tight ship that Nick Saban was running in Tuscaloosa. I credited him for keeping things quiet on the legal front in recent seasons, but also pointed out that those things tend to run in cycles. Some kids do dumb things regardless of their coach’s wishes/demands.
I was immediately hit with a few emails from Bama fans who happened to be listening to my interview. They claimed that I didn’t understand the Alabama program and how perfectly Saban was running things (as if any coach has control over 100 college-age kids 24 hours a day).
Well, I’ll be interested to see how many of those folks email me today.
