If you thought Nick Saban had a mercurial temper, his daughter’s is allegedly worse.
According to reports, Kristen Saban is being sued by one of her sorority sisters from the University of Alabama – alleging that the daughter of the Crimson Tide’s head coach beat her up when the two had a confrontation over a Facebook post in August of 2010.
CBSSports.com reported that the lawsuit was filed late last month. It reportedly alleges that Saban’s daughter hit the aforementioned sorority sister, Sarah Grimes, who needed nasal surgery as a result.
Citing the detailed lawsuit, Outkick the Coverage reported late Wednesday night, after it was tipped off from an LSU message board, that Saban caused Grimes a concussion and forced her to seek – as CBSSports.com also describes it – “psychological help” due to the trauma.
It all reportedly started with the girls playing the drinking game “Power Hour,” getting into an apparently drunken argument and escalated after Grimes confronted Saban about a nasty Facebook status update.
Reads the lawsuit:
31. Kristen immediately used both of her hands and shoved Sarah into the corner of Courtney’s open door, slamming Sarah’s head.
32. Sarah defended herself by pushing Kristen into the opposite wall, saying “Don’t touch me.”
32. Kristen proceeded to punch Sarah Grimes multiple times in her head and nose, and to pull Sarah’s hair, even though Kristen knew that Sarah had really bad migraines from a prior head injury from an automobile accident.
33. By this time Meghan, who was outside in the parking lot, heard the yelling and ran upstairs.
34. Sarah screamed “I’m calling the cops!”
35. Kristen’s grip on Sarah’s hair prevented Sarah from getting away
and they moved down the hall toward the kitchen as Sarah tried to get away.
36. After multiple blows to Sarah’s face, Hannah intervened and tried to pull Kristen away but was unable to do so due to Kristen’s grip of Sarah’s hair and Kristen refused to stop hitting Sarah.
The suit claims Kristen was not charged criminally but pleaded guilty to an unspecified offense to the university’s judicial board, which required her to take an anger management class and undergo psychological screening. The whole lawsuit can be read at Outkick the Coverage.
Kristen Saban’s attorney, Joshua P. Hayes, replied to an inquiry from Outkick the Coverage, stating: “Bob Prince and I are proud to represent Kristen Saban. We strongly dispute the allegations — and that’s all they are at this point — made in the complaint. We will vigorously defend Kristen and the truth will come out.”
