MARYVILLE, Tenn. – Former University of Tennessee offensive tackle Aaron Douglas has been charged with DUI.

The Daily Times of Maryville reports that Douglas, now with the University of Alabama, was arrested Thursday night and released on $1,000 bond.

A Blount County Jail official told The Associated Press he’s uncertain whether Douglas has hired an attorney and a spokeswoman didn’t immediately return a phone call.

According to the police report, Douglas, 21, was unsteady on his feet and uncooperative.

Douglas started nine games as a freshman offensive tackle at Tennessee before receiving his release in March.

After visiting Alabama last month, Douglas recently said he had signed with the Crimson Tide and would enroll in classes at Alabama in 2011.
