From national championship to jail for 4 Alabama football players

Just a month after reveling in the glory of a national championship, four members of the University of Alabama football team have been arrested after a pair of campus robberies.

The accused are all freshmen members of the Crimson Tide team, which beat Notre Dame in a resounding 42-14 victory last month to clinch the BCS National Championship.

Three players are charged with robbery, and one is charged with fraudulent use of a credit or debit card.
