TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama star defender Tim Williams sat out the first half Saturday night against Kentucky.

The top-ranked Crimson Tide’s outside linebacker was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of carrying a pistol without a permit early Thursday morning. Williams was replaced by redshirt freshman Anfernee Jennings in the starting lineup but came in on the opening drive of the third quarter.

He finished with three tackles for loss and a sack. Defensive end Jonathan Allen says Williams “stood up in front of the team and apologized for the negative attention he brought on us.”

Williams emerged as a star pass rusher for the Tide last season, recording 10.5 sacks without starting a game. A projected first-round draft pick, Williams moved into the starting role this season.
