Alabama running back Altee Tenpenny has been arrested for pot possesssion, it has been reported.
AL.com reported that Tenpenny was stopped by police in Little Rock, AR on March 21 because of an unoperational license plate light, and then police looked in the bar, smelled marijuana, and searched car, finding “a clear plastic bag filled with 2.1 grams of marijuana“, which the player admitted to knowing about.
He was later charged.
Alabama coach Nick Saban said: “I’m aware of the situation with Altee and this is obviously not the kind of behavior we expect from our players. In addition to any punishment he may receive from a legal standpoint, we will have some internal discipline as well as education that he will be responsible for working through.”
He will appear in court April 10th.
