Only days after national signing day and not even time for spring games, the Alabama Crimson Tide are already making national headlines.These are not the good headlines we are used to hearing about from the defending two-time national champions.Four Crimson Tide players have been arrested and charged in an assault, robbery, and weapons charges.Receiver Eddie Williams was first arrested on Sunday on a charge of unlawful carrying of a firearm without a license. While being questioned Williams told the police that he had assaulted and robbed a man on campus. He has been charged with second-degree robbery and fraudulent use of a credit card for those actions.The victim in the matter suffered a concussion and said that his wallet and MacBook Pro was taken out of his backpack.Linebacker Tyler Hayes and defensive linemen D.J. Pettway have been charged with second-degree robbery in an incident that happened at a later time where they assaulted and robbed a student on campus also.The victim in this matter also suffered a concussion and cuts to his face. He also reported his wallet stolen.To make things worse in the matter, running back Brent Calloway admitted to using one of the victims' credit cards along with Williams. He has been charged with fraudulent use of a credit card as of this moment with possible charges still to be filed.All four players have been released on bonds for their roles in the charges they have been accused of. Williams was already on bond from his gun charge Sunday. Reports are still sketchy from that incident, but reports say that the arrest stemmed from an unruly behavior complaint filed on him at a convenience store.Reports have been sketchy coming out of Tuscaloosa on all the charges filed, but one thing that is clear is that all four players have been suspended until further investigation.With his team coming under turmoil it would be a good time for head coach Nick Saban to consider his options of making a return to the NFL.
