Alabama junior linebacker Dillon Lee was arrested Thursday on charges of Driving Under the Influence, which was first reported by Aaron Suttles of Tidesports.com.

Lee was released on $1,000 bond after being booked by the Tuscaloosa Police Department. According to Tidesports.com, Alabama head coach Nick Saban released the following statement:

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.

 

Saban has praised Lee's efforts this spring. Just a couple of weeks ago he said, "I think Dillon Lee will be a really good player for us. I think he has a good understanding of what we want him to do. He runs well. He's got good size and plays good block protection, especially at the line of scrimmage."

Lee has recorded an interception and scored a touchdown during his first two seasons but has seen the majority of his playing time on special teams. The Georgia native had a solid sophomore season after being sent home from the BCS National Championship Game for a curfew violation to end his freshman season.
