no matter how much they are given, they still choose violence and theft
Four University of Alabama football players were arrested and charged with second-degree robbery following a pair of incidents early Monday morning.
Linebacker Tyler Hayes and defensive lineman D.J. Pettway were charged with second-degree robbery while defensive back Eddie Williams and running back Brent Calloway were charged with second-degree robbery and fraudulent use of a credit card.
According to the Tuscaloosa News, Williams and Hayes admitted to attacking a student, punching him in the head and face and kicking him in the back and rib area while he was unconscious. They stole the victim’s backpack, which had an Apple laptop in it.
Williams said the group committed a second robbery where he punched the victim in the face while Pettway and Hayes watched. Williams stole the victim’s wallet and used the student identification card to buy snacks from the vending machine in the football player’s dorm.
This is the second jail stint for Williams this week. He was charged with carrying a gun without a license on Sunday.
“A clerk in the store told police that Williams came into the store and was acting erratic and threatening that he had something in the trunk of his vehicle after a dispute about paying for gas,” TPD Sgt. Brent Blankley said in a release.
“The suspect and other occupants of the vehicle left the store and began messing with something in the trunk. The clerk then called the police.”
Police found the car, stopped it and searched Williams, who was sitting in the backseat on the passenger side. They found a gun in the back of his pants. He was arrested, charged and released on a $500 bond.
All four players were backups during the 2013 BCS National Championship game.
