TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama linebacker Jimmy Johns has been
arrested on drug charges. Authorities said he was arrested Tuesday in Tuscaloosa and taken to the county jail. He was charged with selling cocaine and possessing ecstasy pills found at his home. Undercover
investigators allegedly bought drugs from the Crimson Tide senior.

Police did not immediately return a call and it wasn't known if
Johns had a lawyer. There was no immediate comment from Alabama
coach Nick Saban. Johns played running back and receiver last season and he moved to linebacker in the spring.
