Just to show that it isn't only modern day athletes who are thugs, criminals and scumbags, this guy named Monty Grow who played college football for the Florida Gators back in the 80's and even a couple of seasons in the NFL was charged with child abuse for leaving his 3 year old daughter unattended in his car while he visited a local strip club. Grow admitted to leaving his daughter in the vehicle but claimed it was only to "run in" and collect some money from a club employee. However the arrest affidavit showed that he was actually in the place for about 20 minutes.
Apparently, the child's mother didn't trust Grow too well as she was tracking his vehicle and was the one who discovered her unattended daughter.
Grow was arrested and released on $5,000 bail.
