Nick Saban Responds To Top Alabama Player's Arrest

Nick Saban screaming on the field for Alabama.


He's not happy.

Alabama senior defensive lineman Da'Shawn Hand was arrested early Saturday morning for driving under the influence.

According to the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Department, Hand, a former five-star recruit, is being held on $1,000 bond.

Alabama head coach Nick Saban responded to Hand's arrest.

He clearly wasn't happy.

"This type of behavior is not acceptable and we are disappointed in Da'Shawn's actions. We are still gathering information and will evaluate what we need to do in terms of appropriate discipline as we move forward, so better choices and decisions can be made in the future."

We'll have to wait and see how Alabama disciplines the star player. The Crimson Tide open the season against Florida State, which could be the first-ever matchup between a No. 1 and No. 2 team to begin the season.
