Update: WLEX has the exclusive video of Gillispie being perp walked to a county jail van. In the report we get to hear the local yokel reporter continuosly refer to the former coach as “Billy G.” Seems to be the locals way of going TMZ on this story…….Late Breaking! Holy Hell the world is ending Breaking News! Billy Gillispie is a drunk!!@!
Kentucky media outlets are reporting that former UK basketball coaching legend Billy Gillispie is sitting in Frankfort County jail this morning on suspicion of DUI.
Police said Gillispie was pulled over just before 2:30 a.m. in Lawrenceburg while driving a 2009 white Mercedes with Texas plates. Gillispie refused to take a breath test. He was arrested and sent to Frankfort to be booked.
Would this be Billy’s first rodeo with police over DUI? Nope. He has quite a history. There were arrests in 1999 and 2003.
We must hand it to Kentucky basketball coaches. They know how to make the offseason interesting and booze-tastic at the same time. Might be time to put down the bottles, eh, boys?
