TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - A judge has ruled Alabama offensive lineman Alphonse Taylor is not guilty of driving under the influence.

The Tuscaloosa News reports (https://bit.ly/2ccJECE ) Municipal Judge Ricky McKinney issued his ruling Tuesday. Court records showed Taylor performed poorly on field sobriety tests before his arrest July 17 in Tuscaloosa, but tests found no alcohol in his system.

Taylor’s attorney, Jason Neff, said a citation for leaving the scene of an accident against the player isn’t expected to be resolved until repairs are finished on a vehicle Taylor struck. Neff said he hopes Taylor gets “an opportunity to move forward with his football career.”

Coach Nick Saban suspended Taylor indefinitely following his arrest last month.

The 6-foot-5, 345-pound Taylor started all 15 games for the Crimson Tide during the 2015 national championship season.
