Four Alabama players, LB Brent Calloway, WR Eddie Williams, LB Tyler Hayes and DL D.J. Pettway were arrested Monday. Brent Calloway was also charged with fraudulent use of a credit card and Eddie Williams was charged with both second degree robbery and fraudulent use of a credit card.
This is a very serious matter and we are very disappointed in the actions that have resulted in the charges against these student-athletes. In this type of situation, the Athletics Department works in conjunction with the University. We will have more to say at the appropriate time.
The young men charged are indefinitely suspended as we continue to gather information and talk to the appropriate people. The University and football program have strict guidelines regarding issues of this magnitude. This behavior is unacceptable for any student-athlete at the University of Alabama and not representative of our football program.
This is the second trip to jail for Williams within one week. He was arrested after police stopped a car he was in and he was found to have a pistol in his pants pocket.
Meanwhile, Calloway claims he wasn’t even awake when the robbery took place.
Calloway was also arrested in 2011 for possession of marijuana.
