Alabama defensive linesman Jarran Reed has been arrested and charged with DUI by police in Tuscaloosa, according to various reports.

Reed, who transferred to Alabama from East Mississippi Community College in the Spring, had a blood alcohol content of 0.13, above the limit of 0.08.

Reed was driving a white 2011 Dodge Charger, according to a TPD news release, when an officer saw him collide with another vehicle at 1:50 a.m. while backing out of a parking spot. Reed attempted to exit the parking lot, but the officer stopped him, the TPD release stated. The incident occurred in the 2400 block of University Boulevard, or the City Fest lot in Tuscaloosa. A field sobriety test was conducted when there was smell of alcohol in the car,”’s report said

We are disappointed in Jarran’s actions and this is obviously not the kind of behavior we expect from our players,” Alabama coach Nick Saban said in a statement. “It is a privilege to represent the University of Alabama and there are responsibilities that go along with that privilege. We’ll evaluate the situation and determine the appropriate discipline so better choices and decisions can be made in the future.

This hasn’t been a great week for Alabama Football. A week earlier No.3 running back Kenyon Drake was arrested for obstructing a governmental operations. Apparently, Drake decided that a police cordon around the area where his car was parked – not that the car was involved in the alleged crime – didn’t apply to him, and despite police warnings, went to get his car, where he was duly arrested.
