According to AL.com, Auburn starting safety Stephen Roberts was arrested on Wednesday night, and faces charges of eluding a police officer and possessing a firearm without a license. Both charges are misdemeanors, but the penalty is up to a year in jail.
The Opelika native was then taken to the Lee County Detention Center, where he was booked at 10:40 p.m., according to Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones, who said Roberts was released, with each charge having a bond of $1,000, later Wednesday night.
Auburn lost a ton of defensive backs to graduation after the 2015 season, and Roberts was penciled in as a starter at safety. The junior played in all 13 games last year, registering 26 total tackles and three pass breakups.
No discipline has been handed down from Auburn yet.
