Normally, offseason shenanigans are limited to players, but as Alabama offensive grad assistant Derrick Crudup Jr showed — allegedly — that’s not always the case.
BamaOnline.com reports that Crudup was arrested on May 22 in Jackson, Ala., and charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana. Jackson Police Chief Charles Burge told the website Crudup was initially stopped for a traffic violation but was found to be in possession of “less than a gram” of marijuana.
A school spokesperson would only confirm to al.com that the school was “aware of the situation and will take the appropriate action at the appropriate time.” The Jackson police department was also unable to add any additional information.
Crudup Jr. is the son of former Oklahoma and NFL quarterback Derrick Crudup. He played at Miami from 2000-04 and backed up QB Ken Dorsey on Miami’s 2002 BCS championship team.
