Former U of Florida Football Player Arrested for Leaving Daughter, 3, in Hot Car While He Went Into Strip Club

No, you probably don’t remember Monty R. Grow from his days playing for the Gators, but local police spotted him right away as the guy who left his kid in a car so he could go to a strip club.

Unfortunately, he’s not the first man–or first former jock–to do this. Why don’t they just set up day car centers at gentlemen’s clubs? Problem solved!

Thanks to WTSP for the story.

A former University of Florida linebacker was arrested for child abuse after police say he left a 3-year-old girl in his car alone while he went into a strip club. Deputies say when they got to the scene, the child’s grandparents were already there and had removed the child from the vehicle.  An investigation revealed 41-year-old Monty R. Grow of Redington Beach had driven the car into the Drive Time parking lot and left the girl unattended in the vehicle while he went inside the Diamond Dolls strip club around 9:48 p.m. Sunday. Deputies say that as they were investigating the incident, Grow ran up to the car and admitted to leaving the girl unattended. She was not injured. Grow was a linebacker with the Florida Gators from 1989-1993. He was suspended for one year in 1991 after he tested positive for steroids and was reinstated by the NCAA in time for the 1992 season opener.
