LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — University of Kentucky police arrested a woman they say was outside of UK head basketball coach John Calipari's home.

UK police say they were called to Coach Cal's home, along with Lexington police, on Tuesday morning over a report of a woman trying to gain entry into the property.

Police say Emily Williams kept ringing the buzzer and asking for someone who doesn't live at the home. When they arrested her, they found several stolen credit cards from across the country.


The woman was taken into custody and charged with trespassing and six counts of theft by deception. The theft charges do not involve Coach Calipari.

This isn't the first run-in on Coach Cal's property for Williams. LEX 18 found an arrest citation that says she has been to the home back in July, charging her with trespassing and public intoxication. It says Williams found her way into the backyard and put her feet into the pool.

The citation from July says the homeowner called the police, and officers tried to escort her away several times. Police described Williams at the time as "not very willing to leave" and insisting she was allowed to stay. Officers also say she showed signs of methamphetamine intoxication.

Police say the woman is not affiliated with the Calipari family and is currently undergoing a mental health evaluation.
