Alabama defensive end Da'Shawn Hand arrested on DUI charge

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama defensive end Da’Shawn Hand has been arrested on a charge of driving under the influence less than a week before the Crimson Tide opens fall camp.

Tuscaloosa Sheriff Department online records show that Hand was arrested Saturday by Tuscaloosa police. He was jailed on $ 1,000 bond.

No more information was immediately available. A police spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for details.

Hand is expected to contend for a starting job this season. The 6-foot-4, 288-pound senior was rated the nation’s top overall recruit by out of high school in Woodbridge, Virginia. He has seven career sacks, including two last season.

The Tide opens Sept. 2 against Florida State in a likely matchup of top 5 teams.
