Former Georgia/current Alabama State running back Isaiah Crowell may be in more serious hot water than he was originally. Crowell was kicked out of the Bulldog football program after being arrested in June on weapons-related charges. It now turns out that the firearm found in Crowell's possession is listed as being stolen property.

"Though altered, scientists at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s State Crime Lab were able to recover the handgun’s serial number through a chemical process, said Athens-Clarke police Sgt. Rick Hammond.

Authorities ran the serial number though a firearms database and learned it was reported stolen about a year ago in a different county, Hammond said."

Athens-Clarke county police were waiting on the results from the lab before formally charging Crowell.
