UK senior guard Jon Hood returned to his Toyota Tundra in the Joe Craft E lot Sunday to find that two of his $450 tires had been slashed, according to a UK police report.
The truck, which still sat in the lot Tuesday, had a hand written sign on it that read, “tires slashed police report on file, cannot move car!! When I can I will,” and was signed Jon Hood.
A parking violation with a $25 fine was placed on the truck Monday.
The fact that Hood is a basketball player is not a factor in the ticketing or ticket paying process, said Lance Broeking, director of parking and transportation.
Walter Cornett, of Glendale, Kentucky, is the owner and operator of Walter’s Wildcat World. He founded WildcatWorld.com in 1998 making it one of the oldest Kentucky basketball fan sites in operation today.
