TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama defensive lineman LaBryan Ray has been arrested on a public intoxication charge.

Tuscaloosa Police spokeswoman Lt. Teena Richardson says Ray was arrested Friday at about 7 p.m. after refusing to leave an establishment at Midtown Village. Security detained him until police arrived.

Officers determined that Ray was intoxicated. He was booked at Tuscaloosa County Jail on a $500 bond.

Ray was a backup last season as a sophomore but had 39 tackles, six tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks. The former five-star recruit from Madison, Alabama, is likely to contend for a starting role next season with Quinnen Williams and Isaiah Buggs leaving.

Alabama coach Nick Saban says in a statement that “we will evaluate what we need to do in terms of appropriate discipline and rehabilitation as we move forward.”
