The first poor judgment decision of the offseason has occurred for the University of Alabama football program, as senior defensive line Da’Shawn Hand was arrested and charged with driving under the influence earlier today.
Despite a release of the situation coming from the Tuscaloosa sheriff’s office, no further details were made known.
Hand, who was a five-star prospect in the Crimson Tide’s 2014 recruiting class, is expected to be a major contributor in the upcoming season. He recorded 21 tackles, including 3.5 tackles for loss and two sacks in 2016. Hand was immediately released on a $1,000 bond. Alabama head coach Nick Saban and the Tide will start fall camp next week on Thursday, Aug. 3.
