Where ever Nick Saban goes, bad things follow. In the latest string of problems for Alabama (besides the fact that Saban is their coach), Linebacker Jimmy Johns was arrested and charged with possession of and trafficking of cocaine.
The police had been investigating Johns for a while. They made multiple drug purchases and after he was arrested, his house was searched and in it they found 10 grams of cocaine and ecstasy pills.
Investigators with the West Alabama Narcotics Task Force picked up Johns Tuesday morning around 8 a.m. Sources tell FOX6 News Johns has been under investigation for a couple of weeks.
Tuscaloosa Police Chief Ken Swindle says Johns is charged with 5 counts of distribution of powder cocaine, and 1 count of possession.
He was swiftly kicked off the team by Saban. If there is one positive in this, at least he wasn’t selling to teammates.
