Alabama TE Kurt Freitag caught with 4 ounces of marijuana and cash in dorm
Monday October 13th, 2014

A search of Alabama tight end Kurt Freitag's dorm room turned up 112 grams of marijuana and $4,661 in cash, according to court records obtained by AL.com.

Agents from the West Alabama Narcotics Task Force saw Freitag involved in "a drug transaction" outside Bryant Hall on Oct. 7, the records say. After identifying Freitag with the help of a confidential informant, the agents read him his Miranda rights and were granted permission to search his dorm room. During that search, the records say, agents found 112 grams (about four ounces) of marijuana and $4,661 in cash.

The records make no mention of a criminal charge against Freitag.

Freitag was ranked as a four-star recruit and the No. 13 tight end in his class by ESPN.

A redshirt sophomore who played in two games last season and has not seen the field this year, Freitag has not been listed on the depth chart for any of Alabama's games this season.

Neither the university nor the Tuscaloosa Police Department offered any comment to AL.com.
