Alabama safety Mark Barron — the Tide’s leading tackler from a year ago — was arrested early yesterday morning on a misdemeanor charge of hindering prosecution. Great timing as Bama kicks off spring practice today.
Police officers in Mobile, Alabama — Barron’s hometown — were called to the scene of a car accident involving the player’s car. We’ll let WALA-TV pick it up from there:
When the officer arrived, Mark Barron was on the scene. He told the officer he had been at a nightclub on Airport Boulevard, when a person he only knew as “Bull” took his car without permission.
During the investigation, the officer determined that the drive was not “Bull,” but Barron’s cousin Jeremy Lang, and Land had been the driver to leave the scene of the accident.
When the officer asked Barron about the situation again, Barron continued to insist the driver of the car was “Bull.”
The officer said he gave Barron multiple chances to tell the truth. The officer explained the consequences for Barron not telling the truth. Barron still refused to change his story.
At least we know Barron’s no snitch. But he was a second-team All-American last year. And he’ll probably be doing some extra running as spring drills begin in Tuscaloosa.
