Alabama: Cam Robinson, Hootie Jones Arrested On Weapons, Drug Charges

By Ty Duffy

Alabama football players Cam Robinson and Hootie Jones were arrested this morning on drug possession and weapons charges in Louisiana.

Robinson, a junior, is a two-year starter at left tackle for Alabama. He was a five-star recruit in 2014, a freshman All-American, and expected to be among the top tackle prospects for the 2017 NFL Draft. He faces an additional charge of possessing a stolen weapon.

Here is Nick Saban discussing him in March.

"“He definitely has leadership qualities,” Alabama head coach Nick Saban said. “He’s got sort of the alpha dog personality that you really like in a leader. Some guys are willing to take that responsibility. He seems to be doing that.”"

Jones, a junior defensive back, was a Top 50 overall recruit in 2014. He appeared in nine games and had two tackles as a reserve last season.
