Tide’s Geno Smith tweets apology following latest arrest

Late last night, Alabama’s Geno Smith was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence. It was the senior cornerback’s second drunk-driving-related arrest in less than two years.

Smith did not participate in practice Saturday, in large part because he was still jailed around the time his teammates began yet another spring session.

Head coach Nick Saban did not address the latest development involving an experienced piece of his secondary, although that’s expected to happen early this coming week. Ahead of that, a contrite Smith took to Twitter to apologize to the university, the football program and its fans for his latest off-field misstep.

Whether it’s enough to help avoid the full wrath of Saban -- and maintain a spot on the roster for his final season -- remains to be seen.
