Jonathan Taylor, the former Georgia DT booted from Athens after domestic violence charges who then enrolled at Alabama, has been booted by the Crimson Tide after being arrested for domestic violence charges.

According to ESPN: “Police officers responded to a call near Alabama’s campus to speak with a woman who told police she was assaulted by her boyfriend at approximately 6 p.m. Saturday.

After speaking to the woman about an altercation that took place at her residence, officers located the suspect at the residence and spoke to him about the incident. Officers found probable cause to arrest the suspect.

The 24-year-old woman had minor injuries to her neck from the assault, according to the police report. The officer also noted in the report damage to a bedroom closet door with a hole punched in it.

Taylor was arrested, and put on a $1,000 bail. And then was summarily booted by the University of Alabama. Nick Saban’s decision to take Taylor on in the first place was a truly terrible one.

Being successful in that second chance requires responsibility and accountability,” said Alabama AD Bill Battle. “In Jonathan’s situation, the University and the Department of Athletics set forth very clear standards of accountability and expectations of conduct. Jonathan was afforded a chance to successfully overcome the difficulties that resulted in his departure from the University of Georgia. Unfortunately, it appears that he was unable to do so, in spite of extensive efforts to assist him.”

It’s strange, because Taylor’s an incredibly talented DT who could well have gone to the NFL. But now, there seems to be only team Taylor’s heading for now, and it’s a jail team.
