Alabama CB arrested on DUI charge

SEC Championship - Alabama v Georgia Getty Images

Not to be outdone by his Iron Bowl rival, an Alabama defender has found himself in some off-the-field trouble as well.

Via the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office, sophomore Tide cornerback Geno Smith was arrested overnight on a DUI charge. His bond was set at $1,000. Other details of the incident are unknown at this time.

“This is obviously not the kind of behavior we expect from our players,” Nick Saban said in a statement. “I don’t have all of the details at this point and will handle it appropriately once I’ve had a chance to review the information.”

Smith was expected to be a key contributor to the Tide’s defense this season. In 13 games as a freshman, Smith recorded nine tackles and a pair of pass breakups.

    Having lived in T-town, I’m shocked a police officer there had the guts to actually arrest him. Usually this would have found its way under the rug.

    Good for him.

    I hate Urban Meyer – he’s such a jerk! All he cares about is winning. As long as he’s there, this will continue to…..oh wait.

    Another typical day in SEC land. player arrested and no big media news. If this was Pac12, ACC or Big Ten, the 4 letter network would be calling for coaches heads!

    Yes, the media isn’t covering it…which is why you’re reading about it on a media website.

    He was probably celebrating the number 1 ranking and anticipating gorging on the riches that come with back-to-back championships. It’s good to be the King!

    “Smith was expected to be a key contributor to the Tide’s defense this season.”

    That’s a pretty assumption. Smith won’t miss a game this year unless he gets hurt.

    Undoubtedly while driving a $30K SUV registered to anybody else. But don’t worry because the Alabama compliance dept checked it out and it cleared.

    God Damn.. Is he supposed to start? Saban loves his CB the most, you always see him(Saban) coaching them.. Role Tide a three-peat.

    Saban will suspend him minimum of 1 game.
