Courtney Upshaw in Court

TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) - An Alabama football player appeared in court on Wednesday to answer charges of a domestic violence incident between him and his girlfriend.
Courtney Upshaw agreed to attend anger management classes.

In August, a campus police officer witnessed the sophomore linebacker arguing with Kendall Gryzb and pushing her to the ground outside the student union building. She had allegedly slapped him.
Both were charged with Third Degree Domestic Violence and Harassment.

"We worked out an arrangement between the 2 plaintiffs where he will have to do anger management course which is pretty standard for this type of thing. And when he completes that he'll get youthful offender status and the case will be dismissed," said Upshaw's attorney.

Gryzb's also received youthful offender status and will take anger management classes.
