Kristen Saban Accused of Assault
This should be OT, and honestly, back off the girl. This is a matter between her, her sorority sisters, and the legal system.
Hey - if you don't want shit to go public, don't beat the shit out of someone. Especially if your dad is a very public figure.
OT..true..but why is this not okay to put up, when we talk about everything else on this board?
Her dad is a pubic figure (oops..I meant public, sort of)...and, well, if it were a guy, you probably wouldn't have the same response.
Honestly - until the real violent stuff starts happening, that's one of the funniest things I've ever read.
you have some deep south sorority sisters all likkered up on drinking games and there's youtube and they're mad about boys and mad at each other and a cat fight breaks out and there are facebook postings and its Saban's daughter and you just can't beat it with a stick!
It felt like I was reading "Drunken Tales Of Alabama" to a 4 year old.
first page or three is pretty comical.
i take a bit of issue w/ #4 tho - "were playing “power hour” which is a drinking game on YouTube, ..." power hour and century club existed way before youtube. youtube may have just made it easier for ppl too lazy to make their own mix cid switching songs every minute.
also a little surprised they admitted in a legal document that young saban drove home from the bar, after power hour and the bar shenanigans. seems like she's daring the cops to give her a DUI/DWI too.
Not that surprising, she’s the defendant. The surprising bit is where the attorney mentions that Ms. Grimes uttered the line “Well if she touches me, I’ll kill her” about Saban.
Considering its a very incriminating comment made to a key witness who will be involved in the trial it's not surprising. Sometimes disclosure of damaging facts to your side at key points lessen the blow they play against you. Also, best it comes out when the plaintiffs attorney is depicting her as a victim and merely acting in self-defense. Allowing that fact to come out during the deposition of the witness would not look good.
Seriously - a game on youtube. We just had a timer on the table that was set for one minute and someone had to reset every time we took a drink.
HOWEVA, later in college you could download a program called iPowerHour where you made a playlist of 60 songs in iTunes and it played the first minute of each song. I still have some of those on my old iPod. Almost all of them started with "This is How We Do it."
Napster (yes that Napster) also had a variety of power hour playlists that could be searched for and downloaded. This was another way of playing the game. However, you had to enjoy the taste in music of the person who made the original mix.
..not the fighting...but the drinking games, and waiting to go to Wafflehouse..
"Nobody understands what it's like! Now lets all go to Waffle House at 3 AM because WTF else are you gonna do at 3 AM?"
Topic is relevant, but no personal attacks on this young lady. She's a non-combatant in the Interweb Wars. Keep it classy, and the topic can stay.
/Assumes he will have to pull thread in 10 minutes.
Great line, and if you believe the document it was apparently delivered with patience, an appropriate amount of melodrama, and a real knack for the moment. I bet you could have heard a pin drop.
In seriousness, I would bet being Nick Saban's child is no walk in the park. Sounds like she may need to talk to somebody with a different perspective on things.
waiting to go to the waffle house?
why didn't they just go? I mean is it ever a bad time for chicken and waffles?
If they would have went, it never would have happened.
Your honor, if the plaintiff had only left 10 minutes earlier to fill her gob with greasy goodness, this assault would never have occurred. ROLL TIDE. Defense rests.
I hate mean drunks. I hope this chick gets taken to the cleaners.
is that during her tenure as president of the sorority, they increased pledge class size by 60%.
What that really means is that the sorority sucked before she got there. Or that Alabama doesn't have class limits like most schools do.
also, in the Greek system, "forty time" refers to something entirely different.
What - so only Greeks drink 40's now?
Do football players only run for exactly 40 yards?
Maybe I misunderstood what you said (because I have no idea what this post has to do with anything). Were you insinuating that only students in the Greek system drink 40s? Or did you mean something else by saying that Greeks had a different definition of forty time.
Please don't answer my question with a question again.
Wait. Let me get this straight. The Dean of Students of a very large public university "responded to the emergency department" in response to an altercation involving students??
That must be one very very busy Dean.
That complaint is hilarious. An act of high comedy, really. Not the situation, but the rambling mess that is the complaint itself.
I was thinking the exact same thing! This has to be the poorest excuse for a complaint that I've seen in a long time. The attorney must be a newbie, I guess.
If there's a bloodline in America that must continue, it's definitely the Saban's:
Wonderful people, those Saban's.
Rounders can't be too happy about this, not good to show up in a legal document serving drinks to a bunch of 19 year olds.
Plus the fact that she drove them all home. Just great.
Am i the only one bothered that it mentions her repeatedly drinking and then the fact that she drove everyone home?
I saw that as well. One or two here and there and it's probably all good. But sounds like she had been drinking for hours... to the point where she was getting emotional and belligerent.
If they played power hour in addition to going to the bar, then she had plenty. Hell, most girls I know wouldn't be able to find their car at that point, let alone drive it home.
As a guy who worked on campus bars for about 4 years, I can tell you that very few people have problems finding their cars at the end of the night. Unfortunately, she is the rule, not the exception.
Double post... ah well.
That's what I immediately pulled out of this. If she's drunk enough to do what she did, how the hell did she drive them home? And even if Sarah doesn't want to press criminal charges, isn't that grounds for arrest itself?
definitely seems outrageous. no way she was ok to drive after power hour and bar time.
Speaking of girl-on-girl assault, our very own Michigan-lovin' Goddess of Jiggle has been subjected to some heinous attack by what seems to be some kinda pro-anorexia blogger:
(caution: auto-starting embedded video in article is NSFW, plus the volume kicks on pretty high, so mute and the stop the video if stock Kate-Jiggle footage is not appropriate for your venue)
Evidently, Kate is fat by this fashionista's standard, calling her "piggie" and a cow. But, as discussed it the article, it sounds like the blogger has already had ill winds blow back in her presumably waifish face, perhaps causing her to keel over or, perhaps, sail up into the air kite-style.
To summarize, girls are mean to other girls, including goddess-type substances.
Let's not skip over the really disturbing part here. These girls had been drinking for atleast 4 straight hours depending on when the bar closed and then Kristen drove them home.
My thought exactly!
I posted this in the Friday random discussion thread, but how about a sign for Dallas: "Everybody hates Alabama! Yayyyyyyyy!"
The idea has legs....serious legs
EDIT: Sign should read "Nobody likes Alabama! Yayyyyyy!!!!"
How screwed up do you have to be to be an embarassment to the Saban family name? Heck, I'm not even mad.
Too bad RDT's doesn't post here anymore, then we could get an idea of the vibe on campus. I bet the girls were drinking Summer Shandy.
And he's bros with one of BV's fraternity bros. We could have had such vivid insider reporting. He's just so well connected.
