TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT)- Alabama reserve freshman quarterback Mac Jones was arrested early Friday morning and charged with driving under the influence, according to a statement from the Tuscaloosa Sheriff’s office.
Jones was involved in a two car accident on 10th Ave. and Bryant Dr. Officers had Jones perform a field sobriety test and he was arrested shortly thereafter.
Jones was also charged with having a fake I.D. by a minor. His bond was set at $1,300.
Head coach Nick Saban made the following statement:
“We are disappointed in Mac’s actions and this is obviously not the kind of behavior we expect from our players. Mac has been suspended from Saturday’s game against LSU. We will further evaluate what actions we need to take moving forward so we can correct the behavior. It is a privilege to represent The University of Alabama and there are certain responsibilities that go along with that privilege.”
