University of Kentucky assistant coach Rod Strickland was arrested Thursday morning on charges of driving on a suspended license, failure to signal and having no vehicle registration. Strickland was arrested in April 2010 on a DUI charge and after pleading guilty, his license was suspended from April 15, 2010 until April 15, 2011. But strangely, he was charged driving on a license suspended for driving under the influence at the time of the arrest. That has prompted both Strickland and the University of Kentucky to point to a clerical error for Strickland’s arrest.
“Rod Strickland was pulled over this morning in Lexington on a routine traffic stop on the way to the office,” [A University of Kentucky] statement said. “According to police reports, he was pulled over for failure to signal and for driving with a suspended license.
“According to Strickland, his vehicle was properly registered and he produced his driver’s license at the scene. We are currently gathering information on whether his license was suspended due to a clerical error which led to his arrest.”
