Daily Camera A University of Colorado running back was arrested over the weekend in Boulder on suspicion of assaulting his girlfriend, according to a police report. Terrence Crowder, 20, was arrested on domestic violence, third-degree assault and harassment charges. According to the report, a woman told CU police that Crowder threw small rocks at her, tripped her several times and rubbed mud in her hair. Boulder police also responded. The woman told police that she and Crowder had been dating for eight months. She said Crowder came over to her apartment around 2:30 a.m. Sunday when she began reading text messages in his phone. The woman said she became upset after reading a message from one of Crowder’s ex-girlfriends. She then collected some items Crowder had given her during their relationship and followed Crowder outside to give him the bag of items. She told police Crowder threw the bag into a nearby yard, and the she followed him out. The woman told police that a group of men had passed by previously and whistled at her, which made her uncomfortable. She asked Crowder if she could continue walking with him because she did not feel safe. Crowder told her no and crossed the street to create distance between them, according to the report. The woman said Crowder then began throwing small rocks and other flood debris at her. Then Crowder rubbed mud in her hair and pulled her hair, she told police. The woman began running toward Williams Village at 30th Street and Baseline Road. Crowder followed and kicked her legs, trying to trip her, according to the report. The woman got away and saw a CU police officer nearby. Crowder was arrested and taken to the Boulder County Jail, where he was booked, according to the report. He was released Monday afternoon on a $1,000 personal recognizance bond. Crowder’s next court date is Oct. 1. Crowder, a redshirt freshman, is originally from Galena Park, Texas, according to the CU athletic department website.
I’ve always advised fellow men that, if your girlfriend is going to go through your phone and read your text messages, you should dump that girlfriend. This chick clearly has trust issues, most guys do awful things with their phones, and nothing good is going to come from searching through your man’s text messages.
Of course, when his girlfriend stormed off, Terrence Crowder should have acted like a man and not an eight year old boy on the playground who was scared of catching cooties from a girl. Throwing small rocks at a girl? Rubbing mud in her hair? Trying to trip her? That’s some real second grade recess behavior. Grow up.
