Alabama sophomore Courtney Upshaw (http://deadspin.com/tag/courtney-upshaw/) and his girlfriend were both arrested and charged with domestic violence/harassment last night—and the father of the girl is not happy. After all, it's completely his daughter's fault for picking on that poor linebacker. Campus cops apparently witnessed some sort of scuffle between Upshaw and Kendall Grzyb, a 19-year-old U of A student, so they hauled the two lovebirds in for a night in jail. But Father of the Year Dave Grzyb is operating under the assumption that his own child is the one who should be blamed (http://blog.al.com/bamabeat/2009/08/father_of_girl_involved_in_alt.html).
"I hate to see this guy get in too much trouble because I honestly think it was probably initiated by my daughter. I don't think he laid a hand on her. He just tried to restrain her to keep from getting hit again."
Yeah, that's probably what happened. You know how women are, right? Or maybe Upshaw "chase[d] down Grzyb" and then "grabbed [her] by the back of the neck and hair with his right hand and pushed her downward in what appeared to be an attempt to push her to the ground." Because that's what the police report says (http://blog.al.com/bamabeat/2009/08/police_account_says_upshaw_gra.html). So maybe we should go with that one?
To be fair, Grzyb did slap Upshaw first and then storm off after seeing him talking to another female. (Dames!) And she's probably stronger than a Division I linebacker—he's only second string!—so clearly he had to chase her down and defend himself. What concerned father wouldn't throw his own daughter under the bus to protect a helpless football player in that situation?
Now maybe if this had happened in March, he could have let it slide, but Papa Grzyb doesn't need this kind of distraction during two-a-days.

Well, at least it's not the cops who are in the team's pocket. I mean, it's not like they "un-arrested" the guy due to him being a football player.

Okay....as the father of two daughters and the husband of a hotheaded wife... I see where the father is coming from.

If there are witnesses, then I would see what they had to say. If this is a he said/she said.... then I imagine the father has more insight into this girl than anyone.

I love how the media works. No where did he say his daughter "deserved to be abused". All he said is that she probably initiated it.

Stupid people are dildos.

In the media, all boyfriends are abusive. Fuck that.
I'm more pissed at spoiled american "princesses" always trying to hit people and get away with it.

we were at a party about 10 years ago, i get into it with a guy and his brother-in-law, they are some bitches. whip their asses. one takes off running and i chase him and WHAM i just get fucking blown up. i reach up to my lip and my tooth is sticking through it. first fucking punch i took the whole fight, hell the only one. and i look over and it's one of them's S/O. i'm drunk and tell her she's luck she's female BUT dont do that shit again. she pulls back swings again i slipped the punch and knocked the 2 front teeth right out of her mouth. needless to say the cops show up and go to arrest me. i explain what happened with about 40 others and they ended up letting me go. SHEW.... some women are fucking crazy and you cant get away without shit going down

Maybe he's right. Dude surely knows his own daughter better than we do.

Sounds like the father knows his daughters behavior.

My wife was arrested a month ago for domestic violence...she now has to take anger management classes and counseling. ANY woman that thinks she has the right to hit or throw stuff in front of their own children has issues and I don't want it rubbing off on my daughters.

No kidding. Women can be crazy and smack guys because they know they can. It is a double standard. I ain't complaining necessarily. It's just the way it is. It's basically OK for a girl to slap a guy, but if a guy did anywhere close to that, he's gonna be in big, big trouble. Goes both ways though. Guys can sleep around, and in alot of cases they will be thought of more desirable for doing so. If a girl does it, they are a slut.

If a guy hits a girl, he is a huge fuckin pussy.

you know i always was taught that and believed it. but if a woman puts herself in that place and is warned she should probably listen. if she doesnt she deserves what she gets.

Really? What if a 200 pound guy hits a 110 pound guy? What if the woman is hitting the man first, and the 110 pound guy is hitting the man first?

My EX (Yay I can say EX now) hit me a couple of times during our marriage. Nothing too major, but I was never even tempted to strike her back. What's the point? She wasn't hurting me, it was actually kind of laughable. The last time she did it was about the time we separated. She hit me a few times, grabbed a wooden spoon and hit me with that so I grabbed her wrists to stop her. She said "You better hope you don't leave a mark". Psycho B!tch. Glad to finally be rid of her!
