“I tried to escape yesterday before the wind started blowing so I could come here where we had a generator and watch film and work during the storm,” Saban said Tuesday at the team’s complex. “And Terry politely said, `If you leave the house now, I’m calling the cops and telling them to arrest you.’
“So that was basically the end of that.”
