Report: Details emerge of Alabama's punishment for Cam Robinson, Hootie Jones
Cam Robinson and Hootie Jones may be off the hook with the law, but not with Alabama coach Nick Saban. On Wednesday morning, details emerged of the two’s internal punishment following their mid-May arrests on drug and weapons possession.
Per documents published by television station KNOE in Louisiana, the two players were indefinitely suspended on May 19 — two days following their arrests. In addition, both players have had to undergo weekly drug tests and visit drug counselors.
Robinson did 26 hours of police ride alongs later that month, Jones spent three weeks in drug rehabilitation at Bradford Health Services in Alabama, and both have been told to take gun safety classes.
Earlier this week, the DA dropped charges on both players, stating, “I refuse to ruin the lives of two young men who have spent their adolescence and teenage years, working and sweating, while we were all in the air conditioning.”
Robinson is widely considered as one of the nation’s best left tackles and should be a high first-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, assuming he declares following his junior season. Jones, a defensive back, has been a key performer on special teams for the Crimson Tide.
