TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama linebacker Tim Williams did not play in the first half against Kentucky during the Crimson Tide’s homecoming game on Saturday.
Williams entered the game in the second half. Reserves Anfernee Jennings and Christian Miller played in Williams’ place in the opening half.
Williams was arrested early Thursday and charged with carrying a pistol without a permit. His bond was set at $300.
“This kind of behavior is not condoned in our program,” Alabama coach Nick Saban said in a statement released Thursday afternoon. “We are currently in the process of reviewing all of the information. Once we have a complete understanding of the situation, we will determine what we need to do in terms of the appropriate discipline.”
Thank god a mistake worth learning from. ????
