The 19-year-old redshirt freshman was released on a $500 bond the same day as his arrest, according to TMZ. If convicted, Pritchett could face up to three months in jail or fines of $500, according to AL.com.
Pritchett played in 13 games this season for the Crimson Tide, who are set to square off against Michigan in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1.
The Georgia native was a four-star recruit who also had offers from Georgia, Florida State, and other programs. The 6-foot-6, 312-pound tackle briefly entered the transfer portal before removing his name the next day.
“Transferring is not in my best interest,” he said.
