(CBS) TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - School officials at the University of Alabama have dismissed four football players following their arrests on robbery and fraud charges earlier in February, CBS affiliate WHNT reports.

"UA's judicial review had been completed. The four students involved in the robberies on campus are no longer enrolled in UA," Deborah Lane, Associate Vice President for University Relations said.

Police arrested Tyler Hayes, Brent Calloway, D.J. Pettway and Eddie Williams on February 12 after a student claimed Hayes, Pettway and Williams physically attacked him on a sidewalk near a campus parking deck. The student also alleges the three took his backpack, the station reports.

Hayes, Pettway and Williams are also accused of stealing another student's wallet, containing money, a University of Alabama Action card and credit cards. Police say Calloway and Williams later used the stolen cards to get snacks from a school vending machine.

Calloway is charged with fraudulent use of a credit card. Hayes and Pettway are charged with second-degree robbery. Williams is charged with fraudulent use of a credit card, second-degree robbery and having a pistol without a permit.
