Four players on Alabama's 2012 national championship team were arrested on Monday, according to a USA Today report:

Three of those players – safety Eddie Williams, linebacker Tyler Hayes and defensive end D.J. Pettway – were charged with second degree robbery. A fourth, H-back Brent Calloway, was charged with fraudulent use of a credit/debit card.

All four players are freshmen and had minimal playing time. In 2011, Calloway was arrested by Tuscaloosa police for second-degree possession of marijuana.
