Alabama CB Geno Smith arrested for DUI.

Well, here's some news Alabama head football coach Nick Saban didn't need. Crimson Tide cornerback Geno Smith was arrested on DUI charges over the weekend, and was held on $1,000 bond at the Tuscaloosa County Jail until at least 11:00 a.m on Sunday. He was apparently released on bail  at some point between 11 a.m and 7:45 pm, according to's Andrew Gribble.

Obviously, Saban was not amused.

 "This is obviously not the kind of behavior we expect from our players," coach Nick Saban said in a statement. "I don't have all of the details at this point and will handle it appropriately once I've had the chance to review the information."

Smith's arrest was the first Alabama player arrested since four players were arrested on charges of robbery and credit card fraud.  No word as been given on his status on the team.
