According to a police report, defensive end D.J. Pettway, wide receiver Eddie Williams, and linebackers Brent Calloway and Tyler Hayes were all arrested after Williams allegedly beat up a guy on the Alabama campus, stole his credit card and used it at a vending machine.

Williams, who was arrested on Sunday on an unrelated gun charge, admitted to his role in the robbery; he was charged with second-degree robbery and fraudulent use of a credit card.

Because Hayes and Pettaway knew that Williams intended to rob the man, they were also charged with second-degree robbery charges. Calloway was served a fraudulent use of a credit card charge.

All were locked up Monday night and later released on bail. Their head coach Nick Saban was not happy.

“The young men charged are indefinitely suspended as we continue to gather information and talk to the appropriate people,” Saban said in a statement released by the school. “This behavior is unacceptable for any student-athlete at the University of Alabama.”

The school also released a statement:

“We are very disappointed in the actions that have resulted in the charges against these student-athletes. In this type of situation, the athletics department works in conjunction with the university. We will have more to say at the appropriate time.”
