Well crap. Brandon Deadrick and Roy Upchurch were arrested early Saturday morning on misdemeanor charges. They were at The Legacy, a bar on the Strip near campus. Deadrick is 19 and Upchurch is 22. Obviously, something will be done to address this issue.
What’s strange is that an Alabama fan board on TideSports.com (The Tuscaloosa News) brought up this topic first.
- HERE is the first topic regarding the arrests.
- HERE is another topic asking David Wasson of the Tuscaloosa News to confirm the story.
- HERE is the commentary from a supposed witness who was at the bar that night.
Coach Saban has not commented on this as of late, but he is aware of the situation. The University is still sorting through facts at this point. I imagine another statement will be issued late Monday or early Tuesday. When more information is available, I’ll bring it to you.
