Former Alabama RB arrested following gun-related incident
Former Crimson Tide running back Altee Tenpenny was arrested on Sunday morning for possession of a firearm and discharging a weapon, according to DailyComet.com.
The current Nicholls State rusher played at Alabama from 2013-2014 before transferring to UNLV for his junior season. But he quickly fell out of favor in Las Vegas, getting kicked off the team in August after breaking unspecified rules.
Tenpenny joined Nicholls State this fall, but has yet to play for the Colonels. Here was the university’s statement following his arrest:
“Nicholls Athletics is aware of the incident involving Altee Tenpenny that led to his arrest early Sunday morning. Tenpenny has been suspended indefinitely from all football activities, effective immediately. All of our student-athletes are held to a high standard and will be held accountable for their actions. We will continue to gather information from the proper authorities regarding the incident as it becomes available.”
The North Little Rock, Ark., native was a 4-star recruit who rushed 48 times for 218 yards and one touchdown during his two seasons with the Crimson Tide.
