Report: Alabama safety Deionte Thompson has warrant for aggravated assault

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

TUSCALOOSA, Ala.–While he’s been participating with teammates in spring practice, University of Alabama safety Deionte Thompson has another issue that calls for his attention. According to a report from KBMT News, the redshirt sophomore has been issued a warranted for felony aggravated assault.

Noah Frillou, 18, was the victim in question of a brutal beating provided by Thompson and three other individuals. Information was gathered by Major Douglas Hudson of the Galveston County Sherrif’s office, as the incident occurred during spring break. Hailing from Orange, Texas, Thompson enrolled at Alabama as a four-star recruit and one of the nation’s top safety prospects in the 2015 recruiting cycle.

He totaled nine tackles a season ago, including a team-high eight on special teams. Since the report on Thursday, Thompson’s father – Vester Thompson – has immediately come to his son’s aid.

For Crimson Tide fans, the hope is that the situation isn’t as serious as it looks.
