Alabama junior linebacker Dillon Lee was arrested early Thursday morning in Tuscaloosa on charges of driving under the influence.

The arrest occurred several hours after the Crimson Tide held their 10th of 15 spring practices. The 6-foot-4, 242-pounder from Buford, Ga., has been competing for a starting outside spot.

"I don't have all of the details at this point and will handle it appropriately once I've had a chance to review all of the information," Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said in a released statement.

Lee played in all 13 games last season, making 16 tackles. He returned a blocked punt 15 yards for a touchdown in the 31-6 win over Colorado State.

This is the second incident for the younger brother of former Georgia guard Dallas Lee. In the days leading up to the BCS championship against Notre Dame in Miami to cap the 2012 season, Lee was sent home for violating the team's curfew policies.
