A college football season full of drama hit a new low this month when a staffer was arrested for allegedly ramming her car into a player’s vehicle.
Court records indicate that Tennessee State University staffer Ariel Escobar crashed into TSU junior running back Devon Starling’s car after seeing him with his new girlfriend, Mia Kanu.
Police were called at 2:30 AM on Dec. 3 in Davidson County, TN, per TMZ. They were informed by Starling that Escobar, his “ex-fling” as well as TSU’s director of football operations and on-campus recruiting, smashed into him after spotting him returning home with his new girl.
The court records paint a troubling image:
Starling recorded 540 rushing yards and two total touchdowns this year, so it seems fair to argue that his game off the field is far more impressive than it is on it.
That said, the swagger is undeniable:
This has been a wild year in college football. Between the allegations of what really caused Deion Sanders to leave Jackson State University, disturbing criminal acts that have occurred and analysts that almost came to blows – it has been one thing after another.
It goes without saying that not everything has been super serious. Spencer Rattler’s girlfriend’s racy photos coming out, the Texas football fan who stripped her clothes off after a loss and fans getting crazy in the stands certainly lightened the mood to some extent.
But it does feel like there were more negative headlines coming out of this college football season than usual.
And with bowl season just around the corner, it is possible that more stuff of this nature will happen going forward.

What crazy details will eventually come out of this TSU incident as more information emerges?
An answer to that question should come at some point over the next week.
