TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama tailback Altee Tenpenny was charged with marijuana possession after an arrest in his Arkansas hometown over spring break.

An incident report from North Little Rock police shows Tenpenny was arrested on March 24 after being pulled over because the light on his license plate wasn't working.

The police report says the officer smelled marijuana and that Tenpenny was acting "extremely nervous and his hands were shaking uncontrollably."

The report says Tenpenny indicated he had "smoked a blunt" with his older brother. The report says Tenpenny admitted that 2.1 grams of marijuana in a clear plastic bag was his.

Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said in a statement Wednesday Tenpenny will face internal discipline in addition to any punishment from authorities.

Tenpenny played in all 13 games as a freshman.
