LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (AP) -Former Kentucky basketball coach Billy Gillispie has pleaded not guilty to driving under the influence of alcohol following his arrest early Thursday in central Kentucky.
Gillispie wore an orange jumpsuit and said few words during his video arraignment, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press. The judge told Gillispie she was suspending his right to drive in Kentucky because he refused to take blood and breath tests.
According to a police report, Gillispie had a strong smell of alcohol on his breath and slurred speech when he was pulled over along a highway in Lawrenceburg about 30 miles from Lexington.
Gillispie was fired as the Wildcats' coach after last season.
