Alabama freshman running back Brent Calloway arrested, charged with possession of marijuana

Alabama freshman running back Brent Calloway has been arrested by police in Tuscaloosa and charged with possession of marijuana.

Tuscaloosa police spokesman Sgt. Brent Blankley said Friday that Calloway was a passenger in a car that was stopped driving without lights at 12:49 a.m. Friday. Blankley says officers smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle and found a bag containing marijuana in Calloway’s possession.

The running back, who has not played this season, was later released from the Tuscaloosa County Jail on $1,000 bond. Alabama associate athletic director Jeff Purinton says coach Nick Saban is aware of Calloway’s arrest and “this will be handled internally.” The second-ranked Crimson Tide hosts Tennessee on Saturday.
