On Monday, four Alabama football players were arrested on charges of second degree robbery. According to CBSNews, the four players who have been charged are Eddie Williams, Dennis Pettway, Tyler Hayes and Brent Calloway.
Calloway, 20, was charged with fraudulent use of a credit card. Tyler Hayes, 18, and D.J. Pettway, 20, were charged with second-degree robbery, while Williams, 20, was charged with fraudulent use of a credit card and second-degree robbery.
According to the jail records, the players were arrested around midnight and released between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m. Williams was released on $65,000 bond. Hayes and Pettway were released on $60,000 bond. Calloway was released on $5,000 bond.
This is now the second charge for Eddie Williams in a less than a week. The defensive back was charged on Sunday for carrying a gun without a license.
Brent Calloway was also arrested in 2011 for second degree possession of marijuana. At that time, Alabama assistant athletic director Jeff Purinton said the team would internally handle the arrest and punishment of Calloway.
While Alabama has yet to release a statement about their arrests, it seems unlikely that all four players will be on the team by the Fall. You would have to expect that if nothing else Calloway and Williams would be kicked off the team as they have both been arrested twice.
All four players are listed as Freshman and none of the four made significant contributions to the 2012 season.
