Report: Charges Against Alabama's Cam Robinson, Hootie Jones Dropped Due To Insufficient Evidence

Alabama football received some huge news today about one of its most important players. Last month, superstar left tackle Cam Robinson and reserve safety Hootie Jones were arrested on possession of marijuana and illegal possession of a stolen firearm. Nick Saban said that he would wait to "gather facts" before making a decision on discipline for the players, and today the charges against them were dropped by the Monroe, La. district attorney due to insufficient evidence.

Robinson is one of the best left tackles in all of college football, while Jones has played in 16 games through two seasons, recording four total tackles. We'll have to see if Saban decides to implement any discipline here, but assume that Robinson will be on the field for the Crimson Tide this fall. Alabama opens its season against USC on September 3 in Arlington, Texas.
