As stated on Twitter, we have learned that Alabama linebacker Tim Williams has a permit for the gun he had while arrested early this morning. The gun is believed to be registered in the state of Louisiana where Williams is from. While carrying a gun with a permit is not against the law, Tide coach Nick Saban is not in favor of his players having them for reasons such as this.
It is not yet decided whether Williams will play this weekend or not. Like the other cases this summer, we expect this to be handled internally.
