Alabama lineman Jarran Reed arrested on DUI charge

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Police say Alabama defensive lineman Jarran Reed was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.

Tuscaloosa police say Reed was stopped early Sunday after hitting another car while both backed out of parking spots. Police say Reed drove a 2011 Dodge Charger toward the parking lot's exit before he was pulled over.

A police department news release said the 21-year-old junior college transfer's blood alcohol level registered as .13 percent. The legal limit in Alabama is .08 percent.

Reed practiced with the Crimson Tide during the spring after transferring from East Mississippi Community College, along with fellow defensive lineman D.J. Pettway. Both are expected to contend for playing time.

Last week, Tide running back Kenyan Drake was arrested for obstructing governmental operations.

Reed is the second Alabama player arrested for DUI in 2014 after linebacker Dillon Lee was charged in April.
