Alabama Defensive Lineman De’Shawn Hand Arrested For DUI

The 2016-2017 season is not off to a good start for the Crimson Tide as one of their best defensive lineman was arrested last night for driving under the influence. Per a report from Tide Sports, Hand was arrested early Saturday morning and being held on a $1,000 bond.

Hand was a crucial part of the Crimson Tide’s defensive attack in 2017, totaling 21 tackles and two sacks. He was also a preseason All-SEC selection by the media earlier this month.

This incident could not have come at a worse time as Alabama reports for preseason camp this Thursday. This, above everything else, will be an overwhelming distraction that will surround the preseason and could have been avoided.

As of now, their is still an excess of ambiguity surrounding this entire situation because not many details have been released yet.

Regardless of what does happen, Alabama opens up their season at home with a non-conference matchup against Florida State on September 2.
