TUSCULOOSA, Ala. (AP) - The University of Alabama has barred three football players from campus after their arrest on robbery charges.
The players are suspended from school pending a judicial review conducted by faculty, staff and members of the Student Judicial Board that is expected to be done by late next week, university spokeswoman Deborah Lane said on Friday.
Defensive back Eddie Williams, 20, and linebackers Tyler Hayes and D.J. Pettway, both 18, have been charged in separate robberies of two students on campus early Monday morning. Williams, Hayes and Pettway are charged with two counts of second-degree robbery. Williams also is charged with fraudulent use of a credit card and was also arrested a day earlier and charged with carrying a pistol without a permit.
Williams confessed to robbing a student who was punched in the head and face and kicked in the ribs and back. Williams said Pettway and Hayes watched him commit another robbery from a nearby vehicle about an hour later, according to court records.
Hayes admitted to participating in the first robbery and watching the second.
H-back Brent Calloway, also suspended indefinitely, is charged with fraudulent use of a credit card for using a debit card stolen from one of the students. He isn't barred from campus.
All four have been released on bond.
Tuscaloosa District Judge Joel Chandler has granted Williams' request to be allowed to return home to Panama City, Fla., while free on bond. Attorney Josh Swords said Williams would be in his mother's custody.
