Alabama running back Dee Hart was arrested Sunday night in Tuscaloosa and charged with giving false information and possession of marijuana.
He was released on $1,300 bond late last night, both charges are misdemeanors in the state Alabama. He was charged with second degree possession of marijuana meaning it was an amount considered to be for personal use. That charge can come with it a maximum fine of $6,000 or a year in jail, but with it being a first offense could also lead to probation.
Former Alabama running Alvin Kamara was arrested just days ago for driving on a suspended license and earlier this year freshman Alabama cornerback Tony Brown was arrested in a very controversial incident at a party.
The University released a statement on Monday saying Hart left the team in January and has not participated in any activities with the team since the bowl game. Dee Hart struggled with injuries through his career at Alabama. Before leaving the team, many expected him to compete for a spot in the loaded Alabama backfield in 2014 along with TJ Yeldon, Derrick Henry, Kenyan Drake, Altee Tenpenny, Tyren Jones, and freshman Bo Scarbrough.
