Alabama head coach Nick Saban’s daughter accused of beating sorority sister

A lawsuit claims Nick Saban's daughter, Kristen beat her sorority sister until she was bloody at a home in Tuscaloosa  in 2010. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC) the alleged victim Sara Grimes is seeking $10,000 in punitive damages. According to the lawsuit:

...on the night of Aug. 29, 2010, Grimes, Saban and three other girls were playing “power hour,” a drinking game on YouTube.  Around midnight, the five went to a local bar, Rounders, where they encountered a man Saban had been dating, the suit says. “Kristen became angry,” the suit alleges, “because [the man] was not paying enough attention to her.”The five returned home, the suit alleges, where Saban became more despondent over her relationship with her boyfriend. Finally, according to the suit, Grimes told Saban, “Kristen, please just shut up. We’re all sick and tired of hearing it.”

Then things went from bad to worse. According to the suit:

Saban went to her room and posted a Facebook status saying “No one likes Sarah! Yayyyyy!” Grimes went to Saban’s room and confronted her about the Facebook status. Kristen immediately used both of her hands and shoved Sarah into the corner of [an] open door, slamming Sarah’s head. Kristen proceeded to punch Sarah Grimes multiple times in her head and nose, and to pull Sarah’s hair …” A friend intervened, but “Kristen refused to stop hitting Sarah.”

After being separated, the suit says, Saban responded that she hit Grimes because she grabbed her throat. Grimes said she did so only after the attack began. Grimes was taken to a hospital, where according to the suit, the attending physician diagnosed her with multiple contusions to the face and a concussion, and said her injuries could have been life-threatening.  Grimes also cl;aims she underwent nasal reconstruction surgery in December 2011 as a result of her injuries. Saban has yet to respond to the case. This will surely be interesting. Saban would do well to pay the money and move on. I'm sure daddy Nick doesn't want or need this type of attention.
