Tuscaloosa Police spokeswoman Lt. Teena Richardson said Ray was arrested at about 7 p.m. Friday after refusing to leave an establishment at Midtown Village. Security detained him until police arrived. Ray's bond was set at $500.
"We will evaluate what we need to do in terms of appropriate discipline and rehabilitation as we move forward," Alabama coach Nick Saban said in a statement.
Ray, a sophomore, played in all 15 games for the Crimson Tide last season, posting 39 tackles and 2.5 sacks.
