LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Former University of Kentucky football coach Hal Mumme was arrested around 12:30 a.m. Friday at the Hyatt in downtown, according to an arrest citation.

Mumme pleaded guilty Friday afternoon during a court appearance. The judge waived court costs and sentenced him to time served.

The citation says Mumme allegedly refused to leave a building after officers asked him to leave multiple times and became physical with an officer during an arrest attempt.

Mumme is charged with criminal trespassing in the second degree and resisting arrest.

Mumme led UK as head coach from 1997-2000. He left Kentucky with a 20-26 record, including a 10-22 record in the SEC and an 0-2 record in two bowl appearances.

He has recently become more involved in the NIL era and launched his own NIL agency, Hal Mumme and Associates, earlier in May.
