Senior QB Mike Hartline, who has started every game for Kentucky this season, was arrested on three charges stemming from a bar incident early Friday morning. The charges he was arraigned on were second degree disorderly conduct, alcohol intoxication in a public place, and failure to notify the department of transportation of an address change. They must have just thrown that last one in to spruce it up a bit.
It stems from police being notified by a woman that she was assaulted by Hartline, and Kentucky cheerleader Ashley Carnes. Carnes was also arrested that night on charges of second degree disorderly conduct, alcohol intoxication, and being 18 to 20 years old and using or attempting to use false identification to obtain alcohol (minor possession of a fraudulent ID). She had her sisters fake ID, and admitted to using it to get into the bar.
It started when Hartline was leaving the Tin Roof, a local drinking establishment, and during the cab ride got into an argument and was "screaming and cursing" at the other person. The argument continued outside, and when he saw a police cruiser he decided to end the argument abruptly and walked in a different direction. He was stopped, and he was unsteady, smelled like alcohol, an had watery bloodshot eyes. The assault charge was not given because she said she was punched in the jaw by a NCAA division 1 starting quarterback and didn't have a bruise. So she was lying whore. He was released on $235 dollar bond.
Above is a hilarious video of some douchebag reporters chasing down Hartline as he leaves the jail, pretending like he's some kind of superstar athlete that was arrested for triple homicide. The action starts at 1:00 if you can handle the news people calling it "breaking news" 10 times and completely exaggerating the fact that they broke it, as well as the extremely douchey sports reporter.
Suspension Update: Despite a clean record all his years at Kentucky, Senior QB Mike Hartline's college career is over because he will be suspended for the teams coming bowl game, the BBVA Compass Bowl.
