Alabama freshman cornerback Tony Brown pepper sprayed, arrested for allegedly threatening police

Alabama freshman cornerback Tony Brown was hit with pepper spray, restrained and arrested for threatening Tuscaloosa police officers and refusing to obey their orders, a TPD spokesman said Sunday night.

Sgt. Brent Blankley, the department's public information officer, said police responded to reports of a loud party involving underage drinking at an area apartment complex just after midnight Sunday morning.

They arrived at Campus Way Apartments on Helen Keller Blvd and located a large party there. Blankley said officers found probable cause to arrest 22-year-old Chavis Taylor for disorderly conduct.

Taylor resisted arrest, Blankley said, and as officers tried to take him to a patrol car to be booked in the county jail, a crowd of about 40 people followed them and surrounded the police.

According to Blankley, the police ordered the crowd to disperse more than once, but Brown specifically continued to be a problem. Blankley said he was told to back up and leave the area, but Brown would immediately approach the officers again after walking a few steps away.

Officers warned Brown that he would be arrested if he continued to disobey them, Blankley said, and Brown responded by yelling threatening profanity at them.

The lawmen there moved to take Brown into custody, but he pulled away from them and resisted arrest. Blankley said officers then hit Brown with pepper spray, forced him to the ground and cuffed him. Brown and Taylor were both taken to the Tuscaloosa County Jail.

Taylor faces charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest and booked pending a $1,500 Bond.

Brown, an 18-year-old, was charged with failure to obey and resisting arrest. His bond was also set at $1,500.

Both men were bailed out later Sunday, and Blankley said no further information would be released about the incident and arrests. Taylor was arrested in March 2013 on charges of theft of property, but those charges were dismissed three months later after he completed 50 hours of community service at a church.

The ole 'refusing to obey orders' charge is about as vague/subjective as it gets. That's something any pig cop on a power trip could slap you with, if he just feels like doing it.

I'm not going to fault Tony for anything until full details are released, though it does suck that he's involved in some kind of misdoing.

If the police are called to your residence because of loud music, odds are strongly in your favor to comply with the request to turn it down and keep it down. They don't like to come back and sure don't like some mouthy, probably drunk (among other things), 22 year old offering up disagreement with their assessment of the situation.

Crowding someone you know is armed and has lawful permission to put a 9mm hole in your own personal 10-ring is not a good idea. Large crowds tend to scare policemen and scared people are more prone to shoot first and assess later.

Brown is an 18 year old boy feeling his oats and thinking he has the world by the ball sack. I'm guessing he has not considered the ramifications of a wall to wall discussion with CNS about keeping his mouth shut and his powder dry.

I suspect that there will also be some friendly counseling about who his friends are vs. who they should be.

If you dont have enough sense to back away from the police when they arent even concerned with you, then you deserve to get locked up.

I'll withold judgment until I have a few more facts, like, is English even his first language and does he know the difference between a request and a command; or, is he a disabled citizen with a hearing problem... maybe he just needs to pay more attention in English class or get his hearing checked. :D

What's it like to be a fan of a program that gets so little respect that instead of posting about your team being the 2nd best team in the entire nation this year, you have to resort to posting s--tty non-stories about football players of other universities?

Cool, some freshman got arrested. Next man up better take advantage of this.

It's about as much of a story as when Kim divorced Kris Humphries (sp?), it's absolutely meaningless.

How many people care that Newton was kicked out of Florida? Or Marshall was kicked out of Georgia? No one.
