Alabama defensive lineman Jarran Reed was arrested on charges of driving under the influence after a traffic stop early Sunday morning.
Tuscaloosa police have confirmed the news, per AL.com's Michael Casagrande.
An incoming junior-college transfer, Reed had 0.13 percent blood alcohol content, well above Alabama's 0.08 percent threshold. Police pulled Reed over after he was spotted crashing into another vehicle in a parking lot and then attempting to leave the scene. He was then put through a field sobriety test before complying with the officer's request for a breathalyzer.

Tuscaloosa police are holding him on $1,000 unsecured bond, according to Casagrande.
"We are disappointed in Jarran's actions and this is obviously not the kind of behavior we expect from our players," Alabama coach Nick Saban said in a statement via UA media relations. "It is a privilege to represent the University of Alabama and there are responsibilities that go along with that privilege. We'll evaluate the situation and determine the appropriate discipline so better choices and decisions can be made in the future."
"Reed is a monster," linebacker Reggie Ragland told reporters in the spring. "If you see our practice and the way he handles the offensive line, Reed's going to be a big-time force this year."
