Alabama strength and conditioning assistant Josh Chapman, a former Crimson Tide defensive lineman, was arrested this weekend on a DUI charge.

It's his second DUI arrest in three years.

Chapman was booked into the Tuscaloosa County jail on Saturday, with bond set at $1,000. His first DUI arrest in Tuscaloosa occurred in January 2017.

A member of Nick Saban's first Alabama signing class in 2007 out of the Birmingham suburb of Hoover, Chapman redshirted before playing through the 2011 season. He compiled 88 tackles (3.5 for loss) at Alabama, where he was a member of the 2009 and 2011 national championship teams.

Chapman was a fifth-round selection of the Indianapolis Colts in 2012. He played three NFL seasons, appearing in 29 games — including 15 starts in 2014 — making 45 tackles and forcing a fumble.

He has been a strength and conditioning assistant with the Crimson Tide since 2016.
