Fulmer Cup Calling: Deadrick and Upchurch Arrested

According to TideSports.com:

University of Alabama football players Brandon Deadrick, 19, and Roy Upchurch, 22, were arrested early Saturday morning on misdemeanor charges following an altercation in front of The Legacy, a bar along the UA strip, at 1215 University Blvd.

Both were released on bail hours after being transported to the Tuscaloosa County Jail. According to jail records, Upchurch was released on a $300 bond. Deadrick was released on a $1500 bond.

Capt. Greg Kosloff, spokesman for the Tuscaloosa Police Department, said that Deadrick was arrested for criminal mischief, resisting arrest and giving a false name after the owner of an establishment at 1215 Univ. Blvd. called and said a group of men refused to leave after being asked to do so.

"The owner was having problems with a group of men outside of a business," Kosloff said. "The group refused to leave. The gentleman who was arrested would not leave when he was asked to do so."

Officers said that Upchurch was arrested by UA police officers, who were on the scene with Tuscaloosa police.

Kosloff said that no fights or injuries were reported in the incident.

Looks like we'll be getting some FnDC points in the Fulmer Cup in the next day or so, even though there wasn't any fighting going on. But on the plus side we'll get to see how Saban handles the discipline, so we've got that going for us.
