Alabama running back Altee Tenpenny was arrested and charged with marijuana possession over spring break. An incident report from police in Tenpenny's hometown of North Little Rock, Ark. shows Tenpenny was arrested on March 24 after being pulled over because the light on his car tag wasn't working. Police say 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. In a statement, Alabama coach Nick Saban says Tenpenny will face internal disciplinary measures, in addition to any punishment from authorities.
