LBS- Dabo Swinney is dealing with a bit of negative media attention leading up to the national championship game on Monday — but it’s not due to his own doing.
Swinney’s brother, Henry “Tripp” Swinney III, was arrested Tuesday for aggravated stalking. Swinney is dealing with his estranged wife, who told him in early October she was going to file for divorce. He was served with an injunction against domestic violence, and his acts after the fact violated that injunction. She accuses Swinney of continuing to text and send naked pictures of her.
Swinney allegedly left multiple threatening voicemails to her each night. An arrest warrant was issued for him, and he was taken into custody this week. He was held on $15,000 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned next month, the Panama City News Herald reports.
Some guys have allllll the luck. Some guys have allllll the pain. Some guys get allllll the breaks. Some guys do nothing but aggressively stalk their estranged wiffffffffe. Well, I guess I wouldn't exactly call someone physically abusing their future ex-wife before sending her dick pics "unlucky", but you get my point. Dabo is clearly the cool brother. Not only is the guy less than a week from coaching a traditionally average team in the National Championship game, but he's doing so with a Heisman candidate at quarterback, and an array of dance moves that have taken a primarily black locker room by storm. Meanwhile his brother is lurking in the distance with binoculars trying to get a glimpse of his former lover through the kitchen window. Safe to say their lives are undergoing very different trajectories at the moment. If he wasn't such a creepy scumbag I would almost feel bad for the guy.
My brother is basically just the 24 year old version of me. There's no jealousy or animosity because at the core we're both just loudmouth drunken degenerates. Can't imagine what it would be like if he was a national sensation and I was about to be a divorced stalker. That would kind of suck. Not exactly sure how I would handle it. Probably take all the free tickets I could get my hands on and try to find a co-ed to make me forget about my wife, but then again that hairline wouldn't exactly do him any favors with substancially younger ladies. Either way Dabo Swinney is on top of the world, and his brother is undeniable at rock bottom. No wonder Tripp has resorted to getting arrested, the holidays were probably an absolute NIGHTMARE for him. Everyone asking Henry where his wife is before spending the next five hours talking about his younger brother's accomplishments? That would drive any man to drink...and hide in the bushes until his estranged wife got home.
Sing it for him Rod...
