Alabama QB’s DUI arrest stemmed from car accident

Now we know a little bit more of the rest of the story.

Early Friday morning, Alabama quarterback Mac Jones was arrested and charged with driving under the influence and improper identification by a minor. While no details were available at the time, the Tuscaloosa News has provided some information on the events leading up to the arrest.

Jones, 19, was involved in a crash at the intersection of 10th Avenue and Paul Bryant Drive at 2:14 a.m., said Tuscaloosa Police spokeswoman Lt. Teena Richardson. No one was injured.

Officers discovered identification in his possession after he failed a field sobriety test, she said.

Jones has since been released from the Tuscaloosa County Jail.

As was the case earlier, there has still been no public comment from head coach Nick Saban or the football program.

A three-star member of the Crimson Tide’s 2017 recruiting class, Jones was rated as the No. 18 pro-style quarterback on 247Sports.com‘s composite board.  The 19-year-old has served as the No. 3 quarterback this year, behind starter Jalen Hurts and backup and fellow true freshman Tua Tagovailoa.
