Former Kentucky and Texas A & M Basketball Coach Arrested for DUI

WLEX-TV in Lexington reports that former Kentucky and Texas A & M basketball coach Billy Gillispie was pulled over in a white Mercedes with Texas tags around 2:45 a.m. this morning after someone reported seeing the car driving erratically.

The arrest marks at least the third time Gillispie has been cited for driving under the influence. In 1999, he was arrested and charged with DUI in Oklahoma. He later pled guilty to a lesser charge. In 2003, during Gillispie's first years as coach at the University of Texas-El Paso, he was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving after driving the wrong way down a one-way street. Those charges were later dropped.

Hopefully this time the coach will actually get a DUI because obviously he hasn't learned his lesson.
