TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama linebacker Dillon Lee was arrested Thursday on charges of driving under the influence, according to the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff Office's website.
Lee was released on $1,000.
"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," Tide coach Nick Saban was quoted as saying in a statement released by Alabama media relations.
Lee played in all 13 games in 2013 and recorded 16 tackles and two pass break-ups. He also recovered a fumble and scored a touchdown. Lee is competing for starting job at outside linebacker.
On March 19, just three days into spring practice, Saban said he thinks Lee will be a "really good player for us."
"I think he has a good understanding of what we want him to do," Saban said at the time. "He runs well. He's got good size and plays good block protection, especially at the line of scrimmage.
"We feel like he can be a very good player and competing for a starting job right now. We're confident that if he wins that job, he'll be able to do an outstanding job for us."
As a freshman, Lee was one of two players sent home from the 2013 BCS National Championship game in Miami for a violation of team rules and policies.
