Tallahassee, Florida ( -- A Tallahassee woman faces grand theft charges for stealing an ACC Championship ring worth $10,000.

Taylor Bowden reported the ring stolen on Wednesday. He said it was given to him by his father, former Florida State University assistant coach Jeff Bowden, himself the son of legendary FSU football coach Bobby Bowden.

Brittany Hassel, 18, was arrested in connection to the theft Friday. The probable cause for her arrest said she contacted Bowden earlier that day through acquaintances, and was seeking to return the ring. Bowden got it back and reported the theft to the Tallahassee Police Department.

Hassel told police she and some friends spent Aug. 28 partying at a local bar and at Bowden's. She said she woke up at home the next morning with the ring stuffed into her clothing. Court documents record Hassel as having said she felt bad about the theft, but was too embarrassed to do anything about it for several days.
