They say “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” and that’s definitely the case with what took place at Tennessee State.

Ariel Escobar, TSU’s Director of Football Operations, has been accused of ramming her car into running back Devon Starling’s car in an apparent lovers’ quarrel.

According to TMZ, the Davidson County police department where TSU is located said that Starling told them that Escobar was an “ex-fling” and she was outside his apartment, in her car, when he got home with his current girlfriend. She allegedly refused to leave upon being asked. Starling reportedly then got back in his car and drove around while waiting for the police to arrive.

When Starling pulled back into the parking lot, Escobar hit his car causing minor damage. She was arrested finally after she showed back up again at his apartment.

Escobar apparently wanted the football player to admit to his new girlfriend that they had a physical relationship.

The university released a statement about what happened.

“The University is aware of an arrest of an employee, and takes the allegations associated with the incident seriously,” the university said in a statement Monday. “TSU is unable to comment on specific personnel matters or matters potentially implicating student privacy laws. We will have no further comment at this time.”

Escobar was later charged with two felony counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon plus one count of misdemeanor vandalism. Tennessee State head coach and former Heisman winner Eddie George has yet to make a comment.
