Four Alabama football players, all reserves on the Tide's national championship run last season, are about to feel the wrath of Saban.

According to the website of the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office, cornerback Eddie Williams, defensive lineman Dennis Pettway, linebacker Tyler Hayes and running back Brent Calloway were booked on charges of second degree robbery and fraudulent use of a credit card.

Calloway, 20, was charged with fraudulent use of a credit card. Tyler Hayes, 18, and D.J. Pettway, 20, were charged with second-degree robbery, while Williams, 20, was charged with fraudulent use of a credit card and second-degree robbery.

According to arrest warrants obatined by the Tuscaloosa News, Williams, Hayes and Pettway were arrested for allegedly assaulting two fellow students in attempted robberies, knocking one of them unconscious. In the first incident, police say Williams and Hayes admitted to punching the student in the head and face, then kicking him in the ribs and back, reportedly leaving the victim with cuts, a mild concussion and severe swelling. They allegedly took the victim's backpack, which contained an Apple laptop computer.

In the second incident, police say Williams admitted to punching another student in the head and face and stealing the victim's wallet while Hayes and Pettway watched. Williams later used the victim's student identification to buy snacks from a vending machine in a dorm room.
