Alabama fans returned from the holiday on Monday to find out one of their players, early-enrollee freshman cornerback Tony Brown, was arrested on Sunday night.
According to a report from Stephen Dethrage of AL.com, Brown threatened Tuscaloosa police after they attempted to break up a party at Campus Way Apartments. Officers arrested one man, and then summoned approximately 40 other people to disperse. Brown refused to leave, even approaching the officers after they warned him he’d be arrested. He was eventually hit with pepper spray and detained.
Brown was booked at Tuscaloosa County Jail and his bond was set at $1,500. He was charged with failure to obey and resisting arrest, and has since been released.
It’s never a good thing starting a college career in the coach’s doghouse – especially when that coach is Nick Saban.
