Former UK assistant basketball coach Rod Strickland was arrested early Thursday morning in downtown Lexington and charged with driving on a DUI suspended license, among other charges.
Strickland, 46, was arrested at East Maxwell and South Martin Luther King Boulevard. Aside from the driving on a DUI suspended license, Strickland was also charged with not having registered plates and failing to signal.
Strickland was arrested on DUI charges back in April 2010. He was re-assigned to an administrative role in the UK basketball program after the arrest.
So far, there is no word on when Strickland, who bonded out of the Fayette County Detention Center later Thursday morning, will be in court.
On Thursday afternoon, UK released a statement that said, "Rod Strickland was pulled over this morning in Lexington on a routine traffic stop on the way to the office. According to police reports, he was pulled over for failure to signal and for driving with a suspended license. According to Strickland, his vehicle was properly registered and he produced his driver's license at the scene. We are currently gathering information on whether his license was suspended due to a clerical error which led to his arrest."
