Nick Saban responds to QB Mac Jones' DUI arrest
Alabama freshman QB Mac Jones arrested Friday morning for driving under the influence. The third-string quarterback also faces a charge of improper ID by a minor.
Jones was reportedly involved in a car accident, and thankfully, no one was hurt. He then failed a sobriety test.
Nick Saban released a statement Friday afternoon about Jones’ arrest, and he announced that Jones, who is redshirting this season, is suspended from Saturday’s game against LSU.
“We are disappointed in Mac’s actions and this is obviously not the kind of behavior we expect from our players,” Nick Saban said in a statement. “Mac has been suspended from Saturday’s game against LSU. We will further evaluate what actions we need to take moving forward so we can correct the behavior. It is a privilege to represent The University of Alabama and there are certain responsibilities that go along with that privilege.”
Alabama and LSU kick off Saturday night at 8:00 pm ET on CBS.
