Tide Basketball Player Accused of illegal Credit Card Use

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama basketball coach Mark Gottfried said Yamene Coleman remained on the team following his arrest by campus police on a charge of illegal use of a credit card.

Gottfried did not provide specifics about Monday's arrest, nor did he disclose if there would be disciplinary action.

Coleman, a 21-year-old sophomore reserve forward, was not available for comment.

According to a police report, from May 6th to June 11th, Coleman made several "unauthorized charges" using an Alabama Action card.

An Alabama Action card is a debit card for students, used with pre-deposited funds, for payments at university-related establishments such as on-campus Bama Dining locations, campus vending machines and area restaurants.

The police report says Coleman made all his charges -- totaling 200 dollars -- at Domino's Pizza in Tuscaloosa. The card belonged to a female student.

As a redshirt freshman, the former Wilcox Central star averaged 1.8 points and 2.4 rebounds while earning two starts. A 6" 9', 230-pounder, he played in 21 of 32 games.
