TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) The daughter of University of Alabama football coach Nick Saban is being sued by a sorority sister who claims the two got into a fight over a Facebook post after a night of drinking.
The lawsuit was filed late last month in Tuscaloosa by Sarah Grimes, who is identified as a sorority sister of Kristen Saban. Grimes suffered numerous injuries in a hair-pulling, throat-grabbing melee that an emergency room doctor said could have killed her, the suit claims.
The complaint seeks an unspecified amount of at least $10,000 and doesn’t mention the football coach or his wife Terry Saban.
An attorney for Kristen Saban filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit on Thursday, blaming the altercation on Grimes and claiming the coach’s daughter acted only in self-defense. Kristen Saban’s motion said she didn’t cause any of Grimes’ injuries.
