The four Crimson Tide players arrested earlier in February for robbery and fraudulent use of a credit card have been released by the team, according to head coach Nick Saban on Wednesday. The University also confirmed that they are no longer with the school.

The charges were the result of separate incidents involving two students. One of the students was left unconscious.

Defensive back Eddie Williams, H-back Brent Calloway and linebackers D.J. Pettway and Tyler Hayes were arrested Feb. 11 after using a stolen debit card belonging to Alabama University in order to buy snacks from a vending machine in a dorm, according to a report from USA Today Sports citing arrest documents with the Tuscaloosa County District Court. They were suspended indefinitely the following day on Feb. 12. Williams, Pettway and Calloway are facing robbery charges and are barred from the campus. Hayes is charged with fraudulent use of a credit card.

Saban said following their initial suspension that the school and its football program "have strict guidelines regarding issues of this magnitude. This behavior is unacceptable for any student-athlete at the University of Alabama and not representative of our football program."
