University of Alabama football player Tony Mitchell learned a hard lesson about the consequences of his behavior.

The freshman defensive back attempted to evade police at high speeds in excess of 141 miles per hour on March 15.

The Holmes County Sheriff’s Office released body cam footage of the traffic stop.

Deputies first spotted Mitchell’s 2023 Dodge Challenger speeding on Highway 79, a major route between Alabama and Panama City Beach in the Florida panhandle.

When he finally pulled over, officers found 226 grams of marijuana, $7,000 cash and a loaded gun in his vehicle.

Mitchell told a police lieutenant that none of the stuff was his.

The lieutenant said he believed him. “I’m normally a pretty decent judge of character — this isn’t you, right?”

As the tears flowed, Mitchell said the weed, cash and gun belonged to his passenger, Christophere Lewis.

“I didn’t have none of that stuff on me,” Mitchell said through tears. “He knows it’s his… I had $1,000 personally. All the rest of the money is his. All the weed, the gun, all the money besides the $1,000 that is mine… I feel like he gonna own up to it.”

“I play football at Alabama,” Mitchell said, while sobbing loudly as he sat handcuffed in the back of a squad car. “I know what I’ve got at risk, sir.”

Mitchell asked the lieutenant if he could call his daddy.

He was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. His passenger, Lewis, was also booked on marijuana possession and gun charges.
