Saban said the program is "in the process of gathering all of the facts in Deionte's situation".

Alabama safety Deionte Thompson had a warrant issued for his arrest for felony aggravated assault by the Galveston County (Texas) Sheriff's Office on Thursday.

Authorities in Texas have issued an arrest warrant for felony assault for the Alabama defensive back in connection with the alleged beating of an 18-year-old man March 18 in Crystal Beach, according to a report.

Thompson was booked into Tuscaloosa County jail Friday.

Thompson is entering his redshirt sophomore season for Alabama.

"He has been excused (from the team) today to cooperate with law enforcement in this matter", Saban said in the statement.

Thompson's father, Vester Thompson wrote the following about the incident on Twitter on Thursday evening: "I understand that journalists have a job to do".

Thompson graduated from West Orange-Stark High School in Orange, Texas, and was the No. 4 safety and No. 59 player overall in the 2014 recruiting class, according to Scout. Just wait until you hear the truth.

KBMT reported Frillou was knocked unconscious and suffered "several" broken bones in his face after getting into a fight. "Trust me, the key word in the case is ALABAMA", Vester Thompson wrote.
