Alabama basketball player Devonta Pollard was arrested Tuesday. He’s facing a charge of conspiracy to commit kidnapping.
Pollard’s mother was arrested and charged with the kidnapping of six-year old Jashayla Hopson back in April. The child was found one day later, unharmed.
Pollard, a rising sophomore on Alabama’s basketball team, is one of six people charged with some role in the kidnapping. His car was searched as part of the investigation.
Pollard appeared in all of Alabama’s games as a freshman, averaging 3.9 points and 3.1 rebounds. He was a five-star recruit coming out of high school.
