Yet another Alabama football player is in trouble with the police. Cornerback Cyrus Jones is the fourth Crimson Tide player since March 28 to face criminal charges, and the second to face charges of domestic violence.

According to the Tuscaloosa County Police, Jones is alleged to have damaged the cell phone of a 22-year old female, and then threatening her with violence. He was arrested on Tuesday night.

Jones faces charges of "third-degree domestic violence criminal mischief and third-degree domestic violence harassment."

This marks the fourth time since the end of March than an Alabama player has gotten into legal trouble. Safety Geno Smith was arrested on March 28 on DUI charges. That same day, Jonathan Taylor was arrested on domestic violence charges. Running back Tyren Jones was arrested on March 31 on possession of marijuana charges.

Taylor and Jones have since been dismissed from the Alabama football program.
