Alabama freshman DB Tony Brown arrested Sunday on resisting arrest charges

The Alabama Crimson Tide football program got some unwanted news on Sunday as freshman defensive back Tony Brown was arrested on charges of resisting arrest and failure to obey, according to TideSports.com.

Brown enrolled in classes on the Tuscaloosa campus this month as he awaits spring practice to start, where he would have the chance to compete for some playing time this upcoming season on the Tide defense that could use some help, as was evidenced by their play in the final two games against Auburn and Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl.

He’s a former 5-star recruit, another one of head coach Nick Saban’s prized pupils, but now we’ll have to wait on the pending case to see if he will be a pivotal piece of the Alabama defensive unit.

All things considered, though, this is not how the young man wants to start his career under Saban and the rest of that coaching staff. Saban is extremely big on the disciplinary aspect of the program, and this was a terrible first impression to make.
