Freshman linebacker Tyler Hayes, 18, freshman safety Eddie Williams, 20, redshirt freshman D.J. Pettway, 20, were each charged with two counts of second-degree robbery while redshirt freshman H-back Brent Calloway, 20, was charged with one count of fraudulent use of a credit card.
Williams, who was also charged with fraudulent use of a credit card, was arrested Sunday on a separate gun charge.
"This is a very serious matter and we are very disappointed in the actions that have resulted in the charges against these student-athletes," Alabama athletic director Mal Moore said in a university statement. "In this type of situation, the Athletics Department works in conjunction with the University. We will have more to say at the appropriate time.
