The University of Alabama has announced that the four freshmen that were arrested a few weeks ago have been dismissed from the program.

Linebackers  DJ Pettaway and Tyler Hayes were both charged with second degree robbery, and Brent Calloway, an H-Back, were charged with credit card fraud.

Eddie Williams – a safety – was charged with both crimes. And things will look to get worse for Williams, who was also charged on Sunday with carrying  a gun without a license.

According to a report on ESPN’s website, Deborah Lane, associate vice president for university relations said: “UA’s judicial review has been completed. The four students involved in the robberies on campus are no longer enrolled in UA.”

Coach Nick Saban said: “Based on all the information we’ve received and going through and trying to determine the future of the four guys that got in trouble, those guys are no longer associated with the football program. Their actions do not reflect the spirit and character that we want our organization to reflect. It’s obviously very disappointing and unacceptable what happened.”

He added: “They’re not associated with the football program, that’s the way I’d put it…Some people learn by words. Some people can learn by consequences. Some people can’t learn.”

It is not known if all four players will play for other colleges again – or will go to jail.

Alarmingly, Calloway tried to defend himself over Twitter about the event.
