ASU’s Reggie Barlow says he was attacked by trustee

Earlier today, we reported about a brawl that had taken place between two Texas drill team dancers, but it seems as though they aren’t the only ones who don’t know how to keep their hands to themselves.

According to WSFA 12, former Alabama State University head coach Reggie Barlow is filing criminal charges against an ASU Board of Trustee member, Herbert Young, after claims that he was physically attacked on Thursday.

Apparently, Young was angry enough with Barlow to wrap his hands around his throat.

But criminal charges isn’t the only dealings with the law that Barlow is currently involved with. After the former Hornet’s head coach was asked to resign by an interim athletics director three weeks into his 3-year contact in 2014, Barlow reacted by pursuing a wrongful termination lawsuit against Alabama State University. After declining resignation and being voted out of the job by the ASU board, Barlow filed suit claiming fraud, breach of contract, wrongful termination and negligence.

The tensions raised with the wrongful termination lawsuit are may of what prompted a physical altercation between Barlow and Young because the suit names several highly placed ASU officials, including Young.

ASU has yet to publicly react to the lawsuit, but it’s probably because defending physical violence between grown men who know better than to solve problems with their hands, is difficult to defend.
