UPDATE: Terrence Jones was also involved in the car accident, John Calipari announced. He left the scene after the accident, but was later questioned by police.

According to reports, the accident occurred at 2:30 a.m. Calipari said the team will have a curfew for the rest of the season as a result.

Kentucky’s Stacey Poole was involved in a car accident along with another person, Lexington police said Friday morning.

Poole and the driver suffered minor injuries when another car swerved into the wrong lane and hit the car, knocking the SUV into a parked car.

Police charged the driver of the other car with DUI and insurance violations. The driver of Poole’s car has not been released.

A TV station reported that Poole tweeted, “Yoooo, im good!!!”

The Tweet you cite was posted minutes before 10:00 PM, so I'm not sure "right before" is accurate.

Leaving a scene of an accident is a crime in the USA but not in Kentucky?

Leaving the scene of an accident is a crime in the good old USA. Oh that's right it was in Kentucky.

Why bash two young college kids just because they play basketball for Kentucky. I've recently been through getting a call at 2:30 in the morning from my daughter that is in college when someone ran the light and hit her. Yes she had been to a party and was out later than dad likes but that's part of college. Hate Ky but don't hate the kids

I hate UK, but I'm glad neither of the UK players were seriously hurt or drinking. Jones probably left the scene b/c he's a dumbass 19/20-yr old, or maybe he had to ditch his weed. Nothing against him b/c I did plenty of stupid $hit when I was 20. The curfew is a good idea, nothing good happens after 2 am.

 love when these schools say that they will handle the punishment "internally". Perhaps that's the excuse that Paterno and the rest of the "conspitators" at Penn State will use when they try to explain the whole Sandusky mess.


I'm sure you didn't meant to equate the two situations. Did you?  Having a college aged student out at two thirty in the morning and ignoring the actions of a monster aren't exactly similar situations.  At least not to anyone capable of logic and moral reasoning, which I assume you are. 


I have no idea why Jones left the scene. Maybe he was up to no good or maybe he wanted to punch in the driver's face and walked around the block.  I can't say for sure, but since he wasn't holding anything and since UK has said what it intends to say about the incident, we'll never know.  But I'm glad Calipari has decided to set a curfew.

Telemarketers

CBS- can you lease put a filter to block these stupid ass telemarketers from soliciting their crap on these sites? I'd rather read a post from an ignorant troll than someone shilling their crap.
