TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Police say Alabama defensive lineman Jarran Reed was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Tuscaloosa police say Reed was stopped early Sunday after his car hit another car as both backed out of parking spaces. Police say Reed drove toward the lot's exit before being pulled over.

A police statement says the 21-year-old junior college transfer's blood alcohol level registered .13 percent. The legal limit in Alabama is .08 percent.

Alabama coach Nick Saban later said in a statement he will "determine the appropriate discipline" after evaluating the situation.

Reed practiced with the Crimson Tide in the spring after transferring from East Mississippi Community College along with fellow defensive lineman D.J. Pettway. Both will contend for playing time.

It wasn't clear if Reed had an attorney.
