Alabama quarterback Mac Jones was charged with driving under the influence after being arrested Friday in Tuscaloosa.  

Per Matt Zenitz of AL.com, the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office announced Jones' arrest and DUI charge. He's also facing a separate charge of improper identification by a minor. 

Zenitz added that Jones' bond was set at $1,000 for the DUI and $300 for the ID charge. 

Alabama has suspended Mac for Saturday's game against LSU, Nick Saban announced, per Nick Bromberg of Yahoo Sports' Dr. Saturday:

"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."

Jones is a true freshman on the Crimson Tide roster. He came out of high school ranked as the No. 18 pro-style quarterback in the 2017 class, per 247Sports

The Florida native has not appeared in a game for Alabama this season. He wasn't listed on the team's initial depth chart coming into 2017, with sophomore Jalen Hurts and freshman Tua Tagovailoa serving as the top two quarterbacks for the Crimson Tide.
