According to Al.com, Roberts, who was taken into custody just before 10 p.m., is facing charges of “attempting to elude an officer” and “possessing a firearm without a license.” Both charges are misdemeanors. Auburn police told Al.com Roberts was in possession of a handgun. The junior was released from the Lee County Detention Center late Wednesday night. Roberts played in all 13 games, starting the final four, for the Tigers in 2015, registering 26 tackles. He also had three tackles and had a forced fumble in 12 games as a true freshman in 2014. The Opelika, Alabama, native was slated to start this season.

Byron Cowart, Carlton Davis, Ryan Davis and Jeremiah Dinson were arrested in April for marijuana possession. Malzahn disciplined the four internally and said they will not miss game action. “Those four men made a mistake, we punished them and they won’t miss any time,” Malzahn said at SEC Media Days. “That’s behind us. Four fine young men, they made a mistake and i’m confident they won’t make any more.” [Visit Dr. Saturday on Facebook for stories you might have missed and chat with the writers] Coming off a 7-6 record in 2015, the Tigers open their season at home against Clemson next Saturday.
