TUSKEGEE, ALA. » A law­suit ac­cuses for­mer Auburn Univer­sity foot­ball coach Pat Dye of caus­ing a ve­hi­cle crash and re­fus­ing to let the other driver leave af­ter­ward.

The suit filed in Ma­con County on Thurs­day says Dye col­lided with a ve­hi­cle driven by Jim­mie Lee McCoy Sr., who was in­jured. The suit claims Dye and an­other man then took McCoy to Dye’s home and wouldn’t let him leave.

The suit con­tends Dye was in­tox­i­cated at the time of the crash on July 6.

Dye de­nies be­ing in­tox­i­cated or falsely im­pris­on­ing the man. He told al.com he fell asleep while driv­ing.

The law­suit seeks an un­spec­i­fied amount of money from Dye; a man iden­ti­fied as help­ing Dye af­ter the wreck, Lynn Hug­gins; and an in­sur­ance com­pany.

Dye coached at Auburn from 1981 through 1992.
