Four Alabama freshman – Eddie Williams, Dennis Pettway, Tyler Hayes and Brent Calloway – were reportedly arrested Monday and charged with second degree robbery and fraudulent use of a credit card. The story hasn’t hit the papers yet, but Bama Hammer was the first to notice the arrests on the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office website.
According to the website, Williams (a defensive back) was charged with FRAUDULENT USE CREDIT/DEBIT CARD and ROBBERY 2ND; Pettway (a defensive lineman) was charged with ROBBERY 2ND; Hayes (a linebacker) was charged with ROBBERY 2ND; and Calloway, the arrest most people will talk about, was charged with FRAUDULENT USE CREDIT/DEBIT CARD.

Calloway, the highest-rated recruit of the quartet – 38th overall in 2011, according to Rivals – was arrested back in 2011 on a marijuana charge. At 6-1, 210 pounds, Calloway was a star linebacker in high school, but Nick Saban tried him at running back, too. If these charges stick, it’s hard to imagine Saban keeping Calloway on the team.
[UPDATE: This was the 2nd arrest in a week for Williams. According to Rivals.com, he was charged with carrying a pistol without a license.]
