University of Alabama freshman running back Brent Calloway was arrested this morning and charged with unlawful possession of marijuana in the 2nd degree.
He was transported to the Tuscaloosa County Jail, where his mugshot was taken, and later released on a $1,000 bond.
According to the reports, Calloway was spotted driving near Bryant-Denny Stadium without headlights, and as the officers approached his vehicle, they detected a strong scent of marijuana. A quick search yielded a small bag containing marijuana, and he was consequently arrested.
After hearing about his arrest, Associate Athletics Director Jeff Purinton said that Coach Saban “is aware of the situation and like all other disciplinary action, this will be handled internally.”
Calloway has yet to take the field this year, but was considered a top prospect going into the season. Up until this point, it looked like he would be going through a redshirt year, and with this arrest, that will likely be the case.
