Alabama walk-on receiver Donnie Lee Jr. was arrested by the Tuscaloosa police and charged with third-degree domestic violence Thursday, according to Charlie Potter of 247Sports.com. 

"[Lee], a walk-on who has not been participating in team activities since a knee injury in August, has been dismissed from our football team and is no longer part of our program," head coach Nick Saban said in a statement. "This behavior will not be tolerated from anyone and is not representative of our football program."

Lee also "received a reasonable and prudent speed charge," per Matt Zenitz of AL.com. His total bond for the two charges was set at $1,300.

According to Kelvin Reynolds of WBRC.com, Lee and his girlfriend got into a verbal argument before the dispute turned physical. Tuscaloosa Police Department spokesperson Teena Richardson told Stephanie Taylor of the Tuscaloosa News that Lee allegedly struck his girlfriend multiple times and was charged after police observed multiple injuries on her.

Lee, a senior walk-on who began his college career as a track-and-field athlete at Florida before transferring to Alabama to play football, tore his ACL during a scrimmage in August.
