This could be some bad news for Alabama.

According to 247Sports, Alabama linebacker Tim Williams was arrested on Thursday morning for possession of a pistol without a permit. Bond was set at $300.

Williams, a senior, is one of Alabama’s top defensive players. He is also one of the top prospects for the NFL, as he entered the season as Mel Kiper’s No. 1 player for the 2017 NFL Draft.

Williams has recorded six tackles and 1.5 sacks through four games this season. Alabama’s next three games are vs. Kentucky, at Arkansas, and at Tennessee. If Williams faces suspension for the arrest, any of those games could be impacted.
