TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WHNT) Four Alabama football players have been arrested.

Brent Calloway, Tyler Hayes, D.J. Pettway and Eddie Williams were arrested Monday.

  • Calloway is charged with fraudulent use of a credit card
  • Hayes and Pettway are charged with second-degree robbery
  • Williams is charged with fraudulent use of a credit card, second-degree robbery and having a pistol without a permit

A University of Alabama student said Pettway, Hayes and Williams physically attacked him on the sidewalk between Paty Hall and the Paty parking deck on campus.  The student said the three punched him in the head and face, and kicked him in the ribs and back.  The student also said the three took his backpack, which contained an Apple Macbook Pro.

In a separate incident, a short time later, Williams, Pettway and Hayes are accused of stealing another student’s wallet, which contained cash, a UA Action card and debit/credit cards. Eddie Williams admitted to investigators that he physically assaulted the student, beating him unconscious.  Pettway and Hayes stood by in a vehicle while this happened, saying they didn’t know Williams was going to do this.

Police say Williams later used the stolen cards, and Calloway did as well, getting snacks from the vending machine located on the first floor of Bryant Hall.
