One Kentucky basketball staffer apparently had a little too much fun earlier this week.

According to a report from WHAS News, Chris Woolard was arrested by the Lexington Police Department and charged with driving under the influence. Woolard, who is in his 12th year as the University of Kentucky’s associate athletics director for basketball operations, was reportedly found in his car covered in vomit. His vehicle was on the sidewalk and still in gear.

Woolard is also the executive director of the Calipari Foundation.

After he failed a field sobriety test, Woolard was arrested on the DUI charge. The 48-year-old Woolard told officers that he had been drinking and took “prescribed medication.”

“We are aware of the situation and we are handling the matter internally,” a University of Kentucky representative said in a statement.

Woolard has an arraignment hearing scheduled for October 28. Hopefully he decides to just call an Uber.
