TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama linebacker Courtney Upshaw has
been ordered to complete an anger management course to resolve a
misdemeanor domestic violence and harassment case.
A Tuscaloosa County District Court official said Wednesday that
Judge Joel Chandler gave Upshaw until Dec. 9 to complete the
course. The district attorney's office recommended the 19-year-old
sophomore be granted youthful offender status upon completion.
The court official said Judge James Guwin gave the same order
for Kendall Grzyb, the female student who was involved in the
altercation with Upshaw.
A police officer said he saw Upshaw grab the student's forearm
and push her away after she attempted to hit him in the face.
Coach Nick Saban did not suspend Upshaw, who got his first start
against Kentucky last Saturday.
