Longhorn Linebacker Blitzes Woman's Bedroom With His Car

All-Big 12 linebacker Sergio Kindle drove his car into an apartment building last week, and lacking any other options, left the car behind, ran home and went to bed.

Kindle's own lawyer said he was "probably text messaging" when he lost control of his car and smashed into a campus apartment building, driving half-way into the bedroom of 21-year-old Ashley Zapata. Witnesses said Kindle and his friends then got out of the car, pushed it back into the street, and then abandoned it. More genius-level logic to follow:

"He knew he was hurt at the time and that he needed to go home and go to bed," Roark said.


I guess Kindle's not a pre-med major. The accident caused over $8,700 in damages, not counting the smashed furniture and computer that used to belong to Zapata. By the way, Kindle was suspended three games back in 2007 for a DUI, but I'm sure that had no bearing on his decision to "sleep it off" and not tell anyone what happened until the next morning. However, since he is not a 16-year-old girl I think the text messaging excuse is equally pathetic.
