Arrested Tide DT blew .13 after backing into car

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, 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.

    Darn, as high and big as the kid is, I hope he only backed into the car with another vehicle. He could knock some serious paint off if he hit it with his body.

    Seems they are getting their R&R in before the season starts.

    College kids do stupid things, has nothing to do with him being an Alabama FB player.
    Keep it in perspective, folks. None of us ever did anything stupid in college, right?

    2001 Dodge Charger? This guy must be a backup.

    Cough…..cough…..Tom Al-Betar…..cough….cough

    Aw, BrownsTown, you’d think that 2001 Charger would settle you down a bit.

    Say, how much is Al-Betar paying you for all this publicity? 😉

    Probably a good thing he backed into another car. Had he not, he could have possibly seriously injured someone. Definitely a college kid doing something stupid, hope he learns a lesson from it.

    Where is the NCAA investigation? If he has no money, how did he get beer and a car? How is paying his insurance? Where does he get money for gas? Shut the school down! Mark Emmertt needs to do a full depth investigation NOW!!!

    2011 Dodge Charger, not 2001.

    Being a scholarship athlete does not mean one takes a vow of poverty. They can get money from family, plus the NCAA lets them receive allowances for clothing. But why are you assuming he’s broke in the first place?
