Ala. football player free on bond, asks to go home

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — A
University of Alabama student suspected of robbing two other students
has asked a judge for permission to go home to Florida.

University
of Alabama wide receiver Eddie Lee Williams was freed on bond after
being charged with two counts of robbery and fraudulent use of a credit
card.

Josh Swords, his attorney, filed a motion Thursday in
Tuscaloosa District Court asking a judge to grant 20-year-old Williams
permission to go home to Panama City, Fla. Swords says he would be in
his mother's custody.

Williams and other players — D.J. Pettway,
Tyler Hayes and Brent Calloway — are suspected of attacking two students
and stealing a laptop, wallets and cash early Monday morning.

It is unclear if the other players have lawyers.
