Alabama's Cam Robinson, Hootie Jones arrested in Louisiana

Alabama players Cam Robinson and Hootie Jones were arrested in West Monroe, Louisiana, on drug possession charges Tuesday morning.

Robinson is also facing a charge of illegal possession of a stolen firearm, according to the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's office. That charge is a felony.

According to the sheriff's website, the players were booked after 3:30 a.m. Robinson's bond is set at $750 while Jones' bond information is not listed on the sheriff's site.

Per the police report, police "detected a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle" Robinson and Jones occupied in the parking lot of a park. Police said they found Jones had a handgun on his lap and after both players were "removed" from the vehicle, police found "a bag of marijuana, in plain view laying on the front driver's floorboard and a stolen handgun under the seat."

The drug possession charges are listed as a misdemeanor in Louisiana and the players are also both charged with possession of a weapon in the presence of narcotics.

Robinson, an offensive tackle, is widely considered one of the best linemen in college football and was a first-team All-SEC selection in 2015. Jones, a defensive back, played in nine games as a sophomore in 2015 and, according to the team website, got his first two tackles of the season against Louisiana-Monroe. Both players are from Monroe.

Alabama coach Nick Saban said the school was "aware" of the players' arrests and "are in the process of gathering facts to determine what internal action needs to be taken."

Robinson was a five-star recruit in the class of 2014 and the No. 1 offensive tackle in the country (and No. 17 player overall) according to Rivals.
