Alabama running back Kenyan Drake arrested for obstructing governmental operations

Alabama junior running back Kenyan Drake was arrested early Saturday morning on a misdemeanor charge of obstructing government operations, according to the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office.

Bond was set at $1,000.

According to the criminal code of Alabama, obstructing governmental operations is defined by the following:

Drake is largely figured Alabama’s third best running back in a loaded backfield. He’s rushed for 975 yards and 13 touchdowns in two seasons, along with catching 12 passes for 135 yards and one touchdown.


Drake ignored orders to stay outside a crime scene.

“His car was in the crime scene area, and he wanted to get to it,” Blankley said. “He went under the crime scene tape and tried to get to it anyway.”
