Alabama player forfeits cash in drug investigation
TUSCALOOSA, AL - Alabama player Kurt Freitag has waived any right to nearly $5,000 seized during a drug investigation.
Tuscaloosa County Circuit Court Judge Brad Almond on Tuesday ordered the money turned over to the District Attorney and the West Alabama Narcotics Task Force.
Court documents filed Monday showed that authorities had seized 112 grams of marijuana and $4,661 from the sophomore tight end's dorm room on Oct. 7. No criminal charges have been filed.
Spokespeople for Tuscaloosa Police and the university have declined comment because the investigation is continuing.
Freitag signed a waiver saying that he would not contest the forfeiture of the money.
Court filings show that agents witnessed and recorded a drug transaction involving Freitag based on information from a confidential informant.
Freitag hasn't played this season.
