Alabama linebacker Dillon Lee was arrested for DUI on Thursday.
The Tuscaloosa County Sheriff Office website says the junior football player was released on $1,000 bond.
The Tuscaloosa News was the first to report the story.
"I don't have all of the details at this point and will handle it appropriately once I've had a chance to review all of the information," Alabama coach Nick Saban said in a statement through the school.
Lee played in all 13 games last season, primarily on special teams. He finished with 16 tackles and a fumble recovery.
He may be best known to Alabama fans for breaking curfew the week of the 2013 BCS National Championship. He and a teammate were sent home and not allowed to be part of the game.
Coach Saban singled Lee out as a player who could be ready to take on a bigger role when spring practice began last month.
