Alabama football player Tony Mitchell is facing legal troubles after he was arrested on a recent trip to Florida with another person.
Mitchell was arrested on charges of marijuana possession with the intent to sell and/or deliver this week, according to media reports.
Mitchell was taken into police custody during the arrest.
Holmes Co. (Fla.) Sheriff's Office acknowledged the arrest in a public Facebook post,
showing images of a large trash bag filled with marijuana in addition to a firearm and stacks of cash that were taken in Mitchell's arrest.
"A search of the vehicle produced an additional significant amount of marijuana, a set of scales,
a loaded handgun between the passenger seat and center console, and a large amount of cash," the sheriff said.
A four-star recruit from Alabaster, Ala., Mitchell was ranked as a consensus top 10 ranked defensive back nationally and a top 15 player from Alabama.
Coveted as a recruit as early as the eighth grade,
Mitchell originally pledged to Tennessee before moving out of that commitment and picking Alabama in June.
