HATTIESBURG, MS (WSFA) -

A former football player for the University of Alabama is the target of an arrest warrant, according to Mississippi television station WDAM-TV.

Terry Grant, 26, is wanted in Hattiesburg, MS after he ran from authorities Tuesday during a traffic stop.  Authorities told WDAM that Grant fled into the woods and dropped a bag he was carrying as he tried to jump a fence.

Investigators say the bag contained a large amount of powdered cocaine. Grant is now wanted on drug charges.

Grant, a Mississippi native, played for the Crimson Tide from 2006 to 2009 as a running back. He graduated from UA, but his injury-plagued career with the Tide ended after he decided not to return for a fifth year of eligibility.
