Alabama running back Kenyan Drake was arrested on Saturday and charged with a misdemeanor count of “obstructing government operations” as confirmed by the Tuscaloosa County jail to USA Today. His bond was set at $1,000.
According to the criminal code of Alabama (via al.com), obstructing governmental operations is defined by:
(a) A person commits the crime of obstructing governmental operations if, by means of intimidation, physical force or interference or by any other independently unlawful act, he:
(1) Intentionally obstructs, impairs or hinders the administration of law or other governmental function; or
(2) Intentionally prevents a public servant from performing a governmental function.
(b) This section does not apply to the obstruction, impairment or hindrance of the making of an arrest.
(c) Obstructing governmental operations is a Class A misdemeanor.
Drake is part one of the most talented backfields in college football along with T.J. Yelden and Derrick Henry with partisans arguing that any of the three could be the best of the group. All three are expected to get carries this season for the Tide running game.
