Alabama linebacker Dillon Lee was arrested Thursday and charged with suspicion of driving under the influence.

Lee, a junior, played in all 13 games last season, recording 16 tackles and two pass break-ups. He is the second Alabama football player to be arrested since the start of spring practice and third in 2014.

"I don't have all of the details at this point and will handle it appropriately once I've had a chance to review all of the information," Nick Saban said in an official statement.

According to, Tuscaloosa Police charged Lee with driving under the influence after a minor accident at 2 am. on Thursday morning.

At approximately 2 a.m., Tuscaloosa Police responded to the scene of a minor accident with no injuries in the 800 block of 31st street after it was reported one of the drivers was intoxicated.

Officers found cause to charge Lee with driving under the influence. Lee was transported to Tuscaloosa County Jail and was released after he sobered up and paid a $1,000 bond.

Alabama will conclude its spring practice with the A-Day spring game on April 19.
