A former Colts defensive lineman and current Alabama football staffer landed in jail Saturday morning after his second DUI in two and a half years.

Josh Chapman was booked into Tuscaloosa County Jail after being arrested by Tuscaloosa police. A defensive lineman from Hoover who played with the Crimson Tide from 2007-11, Chapman has been an assistant strength and conditioning coach with the program since 2016.

Chapman was held in jail on a $1,000 bond after Saturday’s arrest.

Chapman was a fifth-round pick of the Colts in 2012 after recording 88 tackles including 13.5 for a loss and 2.5 sacks over his four-year career. He played three seasons in the league, starting 15 games in 2014.

Alabama hired Chapman as an assistant strength and conditioning coach in March 2016. The 30-year-old won two national titles with the program in 2009 and 2011.

According to a statement from the Tuscaloosa Police Department, officers responded to the 8100 block of New Watermelon Rd on a report of a black male passed out in his vehicle while in the road. Chapman, 30, was then identified and taken to Tuscaloosa County Jail.

Chapman was also charged in January of 2017 when he was found passed out in his vehicle at the intersection of Lurleen Wallace Boulevard North and University Boulevard.
