Sources: Hartselle native with Coach Price
Staff Reports, Hartselle Enquirer
A Hartselle native was one of three women in the hotel room with former Alabama football coach Mike Price, according to a story in The Birmingham News.
Jennifer Eaton, 30, is backing Price's story that he did not have sex on the now infamous night in a Pensacola hotel room. She told The News she was one of three women in Price's hotel room and she came forward after learning that one of the other women is claming she had sex with Price.
"Please tell Coach Price that I'm so sorry if I was any way involved in
getting him in trouble," she is quoted as saying.
Eaton said she and the two other women were in Price's room all night, but only "dancing and carrying on" took place.
The News said Eaton used to be a part-time topless dancer at Arety's Angels in Pensacola, the same establishment Price visited April 16 while in town for a golf tournament. She said she was visiting the club the night of Price's visit.
According to The News, Eaton said she accepted an offer to return with him to his hotel for a party after leaving the club about midnight.
"He was very respectful," she said. "He was joking around. I think he was
just a man wanting some company. I think pretty girls make him feel good. He
made me feel good. Is that wrong?"
