Tony Brown ran into trouble with officers while allegedly interfering while police attempted to arrest Chavis Taylor.

Alabama freshman defensive back Tony Brown – an early enrollee who just started classes earlier this month – was arrested on Sunday night by the Tuscaloosa Police for failure to obey an officer and resisting arrest.

Brown ran into trouble with officers while allegedly interfering while police attempted to arrest Chavis Taylor.

The Tuscaloosa Police Department released a statement regarding the situation.

"Officers told the crowd multiple times to disperse. Officers warned one individual [Tony Brown] multiple times to back up and leave the parking lot. The individual would walk a few steps away and then would walk right back towards officers. The officers warned the individual that if he did not leave the parking lot he would be arrested. The individual yelled threatening profanity at the officer and stepped toward the officers again. At the time the officer grabbed the suspect to take him into custody. The suspect pulled away resisting officers. Officers used pepper spray on the suspect and forced him to the ground and took him into custody. Both suspects were transported to the Tuscaloosa County Jail."

Brown was ranked as a five-star prospect in the 2014 class. He chose the Crimson Tide during the recent Under Armour All-American Game.

Although a true freshman, Brown is expected to compete for one of the starting jobs at cornerback following the departures of Deion Belue and John Fulton.
