Memphis News Scimitar, May 29, 1919:

Ty Cobb Sued For $10,000 As Result Of Hotel Fight

Ty Cobb is the defendant in a $10,000 damage suit filed April 26 by Ada Morris…it became known yesterday when Judge Clyde J. Webster signed an order of default, attorneys for the plaintiff claiming they served notice of the suit during the baseball game [in Detroit] on that date and that Cobb ignored it. The plaintiff alleges that Cobb kicked her following an altercation in a Detroit hotel on April 25.

Sounds like Cobb could have played in the NFL if it had been around then.

Anyway, according to reports, Cobb dropped an N-bomb on Morris and she responded unfavorably, so he kicked her in the stomach and knocked her down a flight of stairs. As one does. If one is a garbage racist monster.
