With the climate we live in, this could have been worse. Alabama star linebacker Tim Williams was arrested on a gun charge, according to authorities.
Williams was arrested 2 a.m. Thursday morning by campus police in the parking lot of the Publix location on University Boulevard. He faces a misdemeanor charge of carrying a pistol without a permit.
Two officers who smelled burned marijuana in the area approached the Chevy Impala where the scent was coming from, according to authorities.
Williams told officers that the car was his. Another person was in the driver’s seat at the time.
Williams friend took the weed charge, while Williams was found with a glock 40 pistol under the driver seat.
