Alabama Crimson Tide defensive back Deionte Thompson is one of four suspects sought for an alleged assault that occurred March 18, Scott Eslinger of KBMT in Beaumont, Texas, reported Thursday. 

A warrant is out for Thompson's arrest on a charge of felony aggravated assault. On Friday, Michael Casagrande of AL.com reported Thompson would cooperate with authorities after the warrant was issued.
