Former Tide football player indicted in campus robberies

Posted: Updated:

A Tuscaloosa County grand jury has indicted former Alabama football player on robbery charges.

Tyler Hayes was charged for his role in robbing two University of Alabama students on February 11, 2013.

New court records show Hayes was indicted on two counts of Robbery 2nd Degree on March 21, 2013.

His arraignment is scheduled is on June 6, 2013.

Hayes was arrested along with former fellow players Eddie Williams and Dennis "D.J." Pettway in connection with the two robberies.

A fourth former player, Brent Calloway, was arrested with other three and charged with using a Student Action Card belonging to one of the robbery victims to buy snacks from a student-athlete dorm vending machine.

Calloway, Williams and Pettway all requested for Youthful Offender Status, Hayes did not.

If granted the Youth Offender Status would, in essence, seal the court records for Calloway, Williams and Pettway.

Court records for those three defendants were available on public court databases until this week.

All four players were initially suspended indefinitely from the football team and were permanently dismissed two weeks later.
