FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -Former Kentucky basketball coach Billy Gillispie has left a central Kentucky jail following his arrest on a charge of driving under the influence.
Police dispatcher Todd Sparrow said officers in Lawrenceburg, about 20 miles west of Lexington, arrested Gillispie and took him to jail in neighboring Franklin County.
Gillispie's lawyer, Darran Winslow of Louisville, says Gillispie was released on his own recognizance Thursday morning, but declined further comment.
WLEX-TV in Lexington reports that Gillispie was pulled over in a white Mercedes with Texas tags around 2:45 a.m. Thursday after someone reported seeing the car driving erratically.
Gillispie was replaced by Memphis coach John Calipari this year after a rocky two-year tenure in which the Wildcats went 40-27.
