Trouble in Tuscaloosa: Four Bama players arrested, charged

By The Associated Press
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Online jail records show four University of Alabama football players have been arrested on charges including credit card fraud and robbery.

Records posted on the Tuscaloosa Sheriff's Department website show running back Brent Calloway was arrested Monday on a charge of fraudulent use of a credit card. Linebackers D.J. Pettway and Tyler Hayes were charged with second-degree robbery. Defensive back Eddie Williams was charged with both fraudulent use of a credit card and second-degree robbery.

The online records also show that Williams was arrested Sunday on a charge of carrying a pistol without a permit.

The website did not show whether they had attorneys. All had been released from jail by Tuesday morning.

A university spokeswoman did not immediately return a message seeking more information, and campus police referred questions to university relations.

All four players were backups last season for Alabama, which has won two straight national titles and three of the past four.
