Alabama offensive tackle Cam Robinson was reportedly arrested in his hometown of Monroe, Louisiana, per Pro Football Talk.

A player who many scouts have been high about as a potential top draft pick next year, Robinson is facing a felony weapons charge and a misdemeanor drug charge and is still in custody.

“Jail records show that he is facing a felony charge of illegal possession of stolen firearms and a misdemeanor charge of possession of a controlled substance, as well as a charge of illegal carrying of a weapon in the presence of narcotics.”

Also in the vehicle with him at the time of his arrest was Alabama teammate Laurence “Hootie” Jones, who is facing the same drug charge and a misdemeanor weapons charge.

Needless to say, Robinson’s football career is likely on hold. He was a first-team All-SEC performer as the starting left tackle for the national champion Crimson Tide last year as a sophomore, so his alleged actions could significantly impact Alabama’s offense this upcoming season.
