Alabama has dismissed running back Tyren Jones after he was arrested in Tuscaloosa on Monday, continuing a horrible streak of arrests for the Crimson Tide.

Jones – who was already on suspension from the Alabama team for “conduct not the standard of the Alabama football program” -was arrested for possession of marijuana after his car was stopped for speeding just before midday on Monday. The officer found the marijuana – as well as digital scales belonged to the man in the car with Jones, Brandon Lee Hansberry.

Jones was charged with possession of marijuana second degree.

This is the third arrest for Nick Saban’s team in four days, following the arrest of Jonathan Taylor on domestic violence charges and Geno Smith for drink-driving.

Tyren Jones had 224 yards and 2 touchdowns on 36 carries for the Tide last year. He was a four-star recruit out of Marietta, GA, enrolling in 2013 .
