Four players were arrested on charges of second degree robbery and fraudulent use of a credit card. Linebackers D.J. Pettaway and Tyler Hayes were arrested on counts of second-degree robbery.
Running back Brent Calloway was charged with fraudulent use of a credit card, while defensive back Eddie Williams was charged with both fraudulent use of a credit card and second-degree robbery.
For Williams, this was his second arrest in as many days. Tuscaloosa police said he was also arrested the day before for carrying a pistol without a permit.
“This is a very serious matter and we are very disappointed in the actions that have resulted in the charges against these student-athletes,” said Alabama athletic director Mal Moore in a released statement.
Williams was released on a $65,000 bond, and Hayes and Pettaway were each released on $60,000 bonds respectively. Calloway was released on a $5,000 bond.
