Report: Alabama LB Tim Williams arrested on gun possession charges

One of the nation’s best teams might be without one of the nation’s best linebackers. Alabama pass rusher Tim Williams was reportedly arrested Thursday morning and charged with carrying a pistol without a permit.

According to Alabama’s Rivals.com website, the senior linebacker was booked into jail shortly at 2:00 am and eventually released on $300 bond.

A mugshot of Williams with charges included was release Thursday morning as well.

Williams, a potential early-round pick in next year’s draft, is coming off a 2015 season that saw him record 10.5 sacks for the Crimson Tide. Williams had considered entering the 2016 NFL Draft, but decided to remain at Alabama for his senior season.
