As if news of Geno Smith's second DUI wasn't bad enough, now comes reports that juco defensive lineman Jonathan Taylor has AGAIN been arrested for domestic violence and criminal mischief.

Taylor was signed in January out of Copiah-Lincoln C.C. (Mississippi) after being kicked off the Georgia Bulldogs team in July for an arrest on charges of felony assault and domestic battery which are still pending in the state of Georgia. Before that incident, he was one of four Georgia players arrested and charged with "theft by deception" for cashing stipend checks twice.

Several Bama fans were not happy with Taylor's signing which left many scratching their heads. Nick Saban critics will grow louder after this latest episode.

There has been no word from the University as of yet but Taylor will surely be immediately suspended. It is likely he will eventually be let go by the team as well as expelled from the University if the charges hold true.

BLACK SATURDAY UPDATE: WR Cam Sims has torn an ACL.

BLACK SATURDAY UPDATE II: Nick Saban has announced "Jonathan Taylor has been dismissed from the team and is no longer a part of our program."
