The Jones County Sheriff’s Department’s online records show that Ricks was booked at 5:14 p.m. Sunday. The bond was listed as $0. Alabama coach Nick Saban was not immediately available for comment on the arrest. Ricks is battling for a starting spot in Alabama’s secondary after transferring from LSU.
