Nick Saban announced freshman defensive back, Tony Mitchell has been suspended from the team during his Monday press conference after Alabama’s first spring practice.
Mitchell was recently charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell and/or deliver, according to the Holmes County (Florida) Sheriff’s Office. He was one of the Tide’s early enrollees. Saban mentioned Mitchell’s suspension was based on the information they have at the movement.
“Tony Mitchell is suspended from the team and all team activities until we gather more information about the situation and what his legal circumstance is,” Saban said. “Everybody’s got an opportunity to make choices and decisions. There’s no such thing as being at the wrong place at the wrong time. You got to be responsible for who you’re with, who you’re around, and what you do, who you associate yourself with, and the situations that you put yourself in. So, u it is what it is, but there is, you know, cause and effect when you make, you know, choices and decisions that put you in bad situations.”
