Monty Grow, a former linebacker for the Florida Gators – no, he didn’t play during the Urban Meyer/Tim Tebow years – was arrested Sunday for leaving his 3-year old in the car while he went into a strip club. From TV-10 in Tampa:
Deputies say when they got to the scene, the child’s grandparents were already there and had removed the child from the vehicle.
An investigation revealed 41-year-old Monty R. Grow had driven the car into to the Drive Time parking lot and left the girl unattended in the vehicle while he went into Diamond Dolls strip club around 9:48 p.m. Sunday.
Deputies say that as they were investigating the incident, Grow ran up to the car and admitted to leaving the girl unattended. She was not injured.
According to Grow’s Linked In, he briefly played in the NFL the Jaguars and Chiefs. Grow started out at safety, quickly bulked up, and moved to linebacker. The bulk was gained through steroid use, and he was suspended for a year by the NCAA. Arguably, Grow’s career highlight was this pulverizing hit on WVU’s Darren Studstill. Brent Musburger loved it.
