According to Travis County records, Texas wide receiver Agiye Hall was arrested on Thursday night around 9 p.m. by UTPD for criminal mischief.

Hall could be charged with a Class B misdemeanor, which can be defined as damages from $100 to $750. Inside Texas was the first to report the news.

The Florida product transferred to Texas in the spring after spending his freshman season at Alabama. He played seven games for the Crimson Tide in 2021 and caught two passes in the National Championship Game.

Hall was suspended from Alabama’s team in April after an unnamed violation of team rules. He was also taken off of Alabama’s official online depth chart.

“I don’t know what his plans are for the future,” Alabama head coach Nick Saban said after being asked how Hall could rejoin his team.

Hall hit the transfer portal shortly after.

“Whether they’re academic or whatever, it doesn’t matter,” Saban said about Hall’s suspension in April. “Everyone has a responsibility and obligation to respect the principles and values and do what they need to do. They’re all there to help them be successful.”
