One of four Tide players arrested charged in separate incident Sunday

Eddie Williams

As it turns out, Eddie Williams‘ arrest Monday was his second brush with the law in as many days.

By way of al.com, the true freshman defensive back at Alabama was arrested Sunday for carrying a pistol without a license.  He was released the same day on a $500 bond.

As was the case with Monday’s incident, no details have been made available.

Monday, Williams was booked by the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Department on charges of second-degree robbery and fraudulent use of a credit/debit card.  Tide teammates Tyler Hayes and D.J. Pettway were also charged with second-degree robbery, while Brent Calloway was charged with fraudulent use of a credit/debit card.

The school is expected to release a statement at some point in the not-too-distant future.

    So I suppose lots of people still wonder why your head coach is nicknamed, Nicky Satan.

    4 guys arrested? Guess that means Alabama only has 97 players on scholarship now….

    As you read this story, remember, this somehow accounts for how Alabama manages to kick the snot out of your favorite team.

    I think this fellow qualifies now to be a FORMER freshman Alabama defensive back. I doubt this will hurt Bama’s recruiting edge and depth of position on the defense.

    This is definitely not good news for Saban and Bama. Two arrests…get this guy gone!

    All 4 must go.

    Sickens me. Just sickens me. I agree w be4bama,
    jettison them now.

    I guess Florida and Bama are having a contest to see who will have the most arrests this year.

    And b4bama says its Thug U? Yeah buddy

    Criminals on the ALABAMA TEAM? I’m shocked I tell you- shocked. What is Saban thinking- three in a row? Any idea what grades these crooks have so far in their pursuit of a “degree”?

  10. thraiderskin says: Feb 12, 2013 11:15 AM

    forget some of you people, can you imagine having to face Saban after all this? I’d rather stay in jail.

  11. noring4youstill says: Feb 12, 2013 11:26 AM

    Why? What is Saban going to do beat you? And risk losing his job and millions? No he is going to cuss and kick you off the team. Let see, being confronted by and near elderly man who can’t truly do bodily harm, or staying in jail where there are real bad men who can and will do harm without fear.

    They will all be kicked off the team and probably out of school.

  13. noring4youstill says: Feb 12, 2013 11:27 AM

    Yeah I’m more scared of Nick Saban than bubba on cell block d who likes my mouth.

    What in God’s name goes on in these kids heads to try and pull a stunt like that. It is for sure not just confined to southern schools or the SEC, but some people are quick to point it out like it only occurs down here. Just take a look at the CFB arrest record report for the last 12 months and you will see it is far from confined to this region.

    Noring4youstill:

    I think that says more about you than Saban

    Rules need to change regarding students carrying handguns.This is usually a 3 yr sentence automatic.Im not beating down on Bama or their fans or school its just the law needs to change.Williams should of never been let back out on the street imo and this beating of a student and robbery might not of happened.If it was you or i im sure we would still be in jail waiting to see a judge.This has happened to other schools also and carrying handguns on or off campus has to stop.If students are caught then this should be up to the student and the parent to deal with what the student has done.

    Twice in two days! Stupid is as stupid does.

  18. onbucky96 says: Feb 12, 2013 4:11 PM

    Ha ha ha ha ha! Typical SEC football. Florida, LSU, Georgia, and Alabama…commence the police line-ups! ON WISCONSIN!

  19. woebegong says: Feb 12, 2013 4:20 PM

    Yeah, stupid statement. In Wisconsin, they just let the thugs downtown beat up the players. Having lived in Madison for 6 years, I know what goes on there. Lilly white you aren’t.

    Nice mug shot,can anyone tell me why this jerk was still on the street after the gun issue.Did Saban or the school get him out on bail ? This should and better be a NCAA issue to make Saban keep his animals caged at night.If this was U.Southern Cal the NCAA would be all over them.Lets have an investigation on Satan town in Tuscalooser.

    We will see how this pans out, but it puts Saban in a situation in which he must act similiar to his peers at other SEC schools.

    last year, UGA rb Isiah Crowell was arrested on a gun charge by carrying a gun in a car he was driving with a scratched off serial number. Crowell was a true freshman starter at rb for Georgia and Coach Mark Richt threw him off the team. Crowell is now at Alabama State.

    in 2009, former Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin had to suspend, and eventually kicked off highly recruited freshmen in Nukese Richardson, Janzen Jackson and Mike Edwards for an attempted armed robbery of two UT students. Jackson was a true freshman starter, and eventually went home to Lake Charles La to play at McNeese St….he entered the pro draft last year as a junior and did not get picked. Richardson transferred to Morgan St, then left, and is now at his fourth college after saying he was going to “retire” from football.

    Les Miles kicked the honey badger, Tyron Mathieu off the LSU team for repeated team violation and failing a drug test(s) due to his use of syndicated marijuana. Mathieu was a first team all American as a sophomore in 2011 and was a bigtime playmaker for LSU…his suspension and eventual release from LSU sent shockwaves through the college football world in August of 2012.

    One thing I find troubling is the fact that a lot of these young men, most of them being black, who grew up on the wrong side of the railroad tracks, have been given an oppurtunity to get ahead in life with a free college education, and if they are good enough, they could possibly go pro. For some reason, trouble continues to find these young men all around the country…..This isnt just an issue in the SEC or Big 12 or Big 10, this is a national epidemic.

    I read a story last week that 43% of the black males in Alabama were disqualified from voting because of criminal records, and if you know what black folks went through during jim crow and civil rights era to gain the right to vote, this is just shocking and sad.

    I hope it works out for these players, through community service and possible expungement from their records, but Nick Saban will probably have to release all four of them out of the program or he will be accused of condoning this type of behaivor in his program.
