A member of Kentucky’s basketball staff was arrested Thursday morning, according to multiple reports. 

Assistant strength coach Brian Shorter was arrested and charged with fourth-degree assault and first-degree wanton endangerment at his home. LEX 18 is reporting that Shorter allegedly shoved his wife into an unheated garage and, 40 minutes later, threw a bucket of water on her. She walked to a hotel to get help.

The temperature in Lexington today was in the single digits, with wind chills reaching negative numbers.

John Hayden, UK’s basketball spokesman, made the following statement: “we’re aware of the situation and we’re gathering information.”
