There have been more than a few bizarre arrests involving college football players over the years, and this latest legal entanglement certainly ranks right up there on the WTF scale.
According to the Boulder Daily Camera, Colorado running back Terrence Crowder was arrested very early Sunday morning following an incident involving his girlfriend. Crowder was charged with domestic violence, third-degree assault and harassment.
The incident that led to Crowder’s legal issues began at 2:30 a.m. local time Sunday when the back went to his girlfriend’s residence and she looked at his phone, becoming upset when she saw texts from an ex-girlfriend. The alleged victim subsequently packed up some of Crowder’s belongings and escorted the player out of her apartment.
This is where things took a kindergarten turn as, over the next several minutes, Crowder allegedly threw small rocks at the woman, attempted to trip her and rubbed mud in her hair and pulled her hair. No information was available as to whether Crowder also accused the woman of having cooties.
The woman told police that a group of men had passed by previously and whistled at her, which made her uncomfortable. She asked Crowder if she could continue walking with him because she did not feel safe.
Crowder told her no and crossed the street to create distance between them, according to the report. The woman said Crowder then began throwing small rocks and other flood debris at her. Then Crowder rubbed mud in her hair and pulled her hair.
The woman then began running toward Williams Village at 30th Street and Baseline Road. Crowder followed and kicked her legs, trying to trip her, according to the report. The woman got away and saw a CU police officer nearby.
The school has not commented on the incident involving one of its football players.
Crowder tore an ACL in October of his true freshman season last year. He had not recorded a carry in 2013.
