And now we know (a little bit more of) the rest of the story.
Earlier today it was reported that Alabama defensive tackle Jarran Reed was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with driving under the influence. While no details were available at the time, al.com has obtained some of the particulars from what led up to the arrest.
From the website:
According to Tuscaloosa police, Reed had a blood alcohol content of 0.13 percent, above the legal limit of 0.08.
Reed was driving a 2001 White Dodge Charger, according to a TPD news release, when an officer saw him collide with another vehicle at 1:50 a.m. while backing out of a parking spot.
In a statement, head coach Nick Saban expressed disappointment in the latest legal predicament involving one of his players.
“We are disappointed in Jarran’s actions and this is obviously not the kind of behavior we expect from our players. It is a privilege to represent the University of Alabama and there are responsibilities that go along with that privilege. We’ll evaluate the situation and determine the appropriate discipline so better choices and decisions can be made in the future.
Reed transferred to the Tide from the JUCO ranks earlier this year and worked with the first-team defense during spring practice.
