TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -Alabama star cornerback Simeon Castille was arrested early Sunday on a disorderly conduct charge.
Tuscaloosa police spokesman Capt. Greg Kosloff said Castille was arrested in an entertainment district near campus. He was taken to the Tuscaloosa County Jail and released after posting bond. Police declined to release details of the incident.
Through team spokesman Jeff Purinton, coach Nick Saban said he didn't have all the facts of the case on Sunday and would deal with the situation ``internally.''
Castille was one of the top defensive backs in the Southeastern Conference last season. He led Alabama with five interceptions and three recovered fumbles.
Saban led his team through scrimmages Friday and Saturday before giving the team a day off Sunday. Alabama starts the season against Western Carolina on Sept. 1.
Castille is the fifth high-profile Crimson Tide athlete - the fourth football player - known to have been arrested in the past two months.
Brandon Deaderick, Brandon Fanney and Roy Upchurch were arrested for their role in a disturbance near campus on July 14. Fanney and Upchurch were charged with disorderly conduct and Deaderick was charged with criminal mischief, resisting arrest, and giving police a fake name.
Basketball player Yamene Coleman was arrested and charged with credit card fraud last month.
