Dwight from The Office filmed a movie in Oldham County

Dwight from The Office filmed a movie in Oldham County

If you thought you spotted Dwight Schrute from The Office in Oldham County recently, well, you may have been right.

Rainn Wilson, the actor who portrayed Dwight, is one of the stars of “Don’t Tell A Soul,” a new film that  filmed in various locations in Oldham County. In an interview with Wave 3, Wilson said he enjoyed his time in the Bluegrass.

“People in LA are jerks but people in Kentucky are very nice. So I’m thinking about relocating. Do you guys have beaches here anywhere?”

Wilson’s favorite thing about Kentucky, other than the people? The Abbey of Gethsemani near Bardstown.

“I don’t do bourbon, horse racing, drinking, partying, anything like that. Everyone else went out to shoot guns. And I went to the monastery.”

Wilson may not do bourbon, but has he tried the Abbey’s bourbon fudge? To die for.

How did this bullet hole get in the 25th floor window of the Big Blue Building?

How did this bullet hole get in the 25th floor window of the Big Blue Building?

There’s a story captivating the Commonwealth and it has nothing to do with sports. A bullet hole was found in a 25th floor window of the Fifth Third Bank Building, aka the Big Blue Building, in downtown Lexington and no one knows how it got there.

The hole, approximately the size of a baseball, was found on Tuesday morning when employees arrived at work. It was not there when they left on Monday. Photos from LEX18:

Jared Lorenzen’s friend works in the office and shared this picture:

Where was the gun fired from? The Big Blue Building, at 30 stories, is by far the tallest building downtown and the bullet appears to have been fired from the outside, not the inside. The guys discussed the mystery on today’s show, so if you missed it, listen to the podcast to catch up on their theories and share your own in the comments.

NOTE: If you didn’t read the LEX18 story, police found fragments of a bullet among the shattered glass.

Kentucky man arrested for throwing ham during fight over when to host Christmas

Kentucky man arrested for throwing ham during fight over when to host Christmas

Juggling multiple Christmases is never fun, but the drama boiled over last night in London, Kentucky, where a man was arrested for throwing a ham at a woman during an argument over which day to host Christmas.

Laurel County police responded to a call about a domestic dispute and caught David Brannon, 21, trying to run away from his house. He was arrested on charges of fourth-degree assault and fleeing or evading police on foot and taken to the Laurel County Detention Center. The fight was reportedly over what day his family wanted to host Christmas.

Who throws a ham? Honestly.

@coolmoreamerica

Two Kentucky legends have finally made their way back to the state.

Justify and American Pharoah, the first Triple Crown winners since 1977 and 1978, arrived back at Coolmore America here in Versailles, KY to meet for the very first time.

The meeting happened this past weekend:

Justify took home the Triple Crown in 2018 while American Pharoah won the most prestigious feat in horse racing back in 2015.

Here was a brief clip of American Pharoah’s grand entrance back home, where he will finally see his first runners coming up in 2019:

And Justify:

While we’re at it, here is American Pharoah’s Triple Crown victory in all its glory back in 2015:

And Justify’s wins in the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont Stakes to take home the crown earlier this year:

Still never gets old.
