LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (AP) -Former Kentucky coach Billy Gillispie has pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of alcohol.
Gillispie entered the plea Monday in Anderson County, between Louisville and Lexington, and received the maximum penalty for a first-time offense.
Gillispie was fined a little more than $1,000, his license was suspended for 30 days and he was ordered to complete an Alcohol Drivers Education Program.
Gillispie was fired this year after a rocky two-year tenure with the Wildcats. He was arrested Aug. 27 in Lawrenceburg and charged with DUI after refusing sobriety tests during a traffic stop in which officers said they smelled alcohol on his breath.
Gillispie apologized Monday for his actions through a statement issued by his attorney.
