Ex-Vol, current Tide signee hit with DUI charge

Alabama v Duke

Oh, this one is so rich in irony.

I was raked over the coals via email because I did not mention the fact that Aaron Douglas, a former first-team freshman All-American at Tennessee, had signed with Alabama on National JUCO Signing Day.

OK, here’s your mention, Tide fans.  And, as a bonus, it involves an arrest.  Merry Christmas!

Douglas, the offensive lineman who signed with the Tide a little over a week ago and who was, by all accounts, a recruiting coup for Nick Saban, got popped for driving under the influence earlier this week.

Douglas was released on a $1,000 bond pending a hearing on Dec. 29. According to the publication’s story at thedailytimes.com, Douglas was pulled over by Blount County authorities for running a stop sign and driving erratically. According to a sheriff’s report, Douglas refused to submit to a blood alcohol test, which incurred a citation for an implied consent violation.

Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Marian O’Briant said Douglas performed “extremely poorly” in a field sobriety test, and according to the police report, he was uncooperative.

Douglas had transferred from Tennessee earlier this year, and played this past season at Arizona Western College.
