Apparently, one member of the Alabama Crimson Tide had too good of a weekend. Or Mark Richt has lost control of Nick Saban‘s squad. One of the two.
Regardless, al.com is reporting that Jarran Reed was arrested very early Sunday morning and charged with driving under the influence. What preceded the traffic stop that led to the charge has yet to be released.
According to the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office website, Reed was released on a $1,000 bond.
Earlier this offseason, the defensive tackle transferred to the Tide from the JUCO ranks. If Reed is suspended or misses any games, it could have an impact on the Tide’s defensive line rotation as the website wrote that “[h]e worked significant time with the first team throughout spring practices.”
Reed was a three-star recruit coming out of East Mississippi Community College in Scooba, Miss.
This is the second time in a week or so that a Tide player has dipped his toes in legal hot waters. The day after the Fourth of July, running back Kenyan Drake was charged with obstructing government operations.
