Louisiana District Attorney Declines To Prosecute Alabama Football Players Due To Insufficient Evidence

A stunner, really.

Another day, another victory for Alabama in the state of Louisiana.

Monday, the district attorney in Monroe, Louisiana, announced he would not prosecute two Crimson Tide football players — including potential top 2017 draft pick and left tackle Cam Robinson — for their May arrest on gun and drug charges.

The reason Robinson and defensive back Laurence “Hootie” Jones don't face any more legal trouble? Insufficient evidence.

Court records showed the two players possessed a stolen firearm in addition to narcotics.

Jerry Jones cited insufficient evidence in proving who was in possession of the gun and the drugs, thus, he is dropping the charges.

Jones says, "I want to emphasize once again that the main reason I'm doing this is that I refuse to ruin the lives of two young men who have spent their adolescence and teenage years, working and sweating, while we were all in the air conditioning."
