TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama football coach Nick Saban has dismissed Jimmy Johns from the team following the player's arrest on drug charges.
Saban announced the decision in a brief statement issued shortly after Johns' arrest on Tuesday. The coach said the alleged behavior won't be tolerated and Johns is no longer on the football team.
Police arrested Johns on multiple felony charges after what they describe as an investigation that lasted about two months. Authorities say there is no indication that any other players were involved.
Johns is in jail with bond set at $120,000. There is no immediate word on whether he has an attorney.
