Alabama junior running back Kenyan Drake was reportedly arrested early Saturday morning in Tuscaloosa and charged with obstructing governmental operations.

According to the Tuscaloosa News, Tuscaloosa Police spokesperson Sgt. Brent Blankley said that Drake ducked under the tape at a secured crime scene in downtown Tuscaloosa and attempted to reach his car, which was inside the secured area -- despite police orders to the contrary.

Officers reached Drake before he reached his car and arrested him. The obstructing governmental operations charge is a Class A misdemeanor, with the News reporting that as of 10 a.m. CT Saturday Drake remained in Tuscaloosa County Jail on a $1,000 bond.

As a sophomore in 2013, Drake finished second on the Crimson Tide with 694 yards rushing and eight touchdowns.

Alabama has not yet commented on the arrest.
