Tim Williams, a senior linebacker for the Alabama Crimson Tide, was arrested early Thursday morning outside Publix. Williams was sitting in the passenger seat of his car, with the gun under the seat. Police found marijuana under the driver’s seat, which a friend was in. Via AL.com:
Police officers were doing a normal patrol when they smelled marijuana coming from Williams’ vehicle, according to sources.
