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.

Triple Crown winners Justify and American Pharoah meet for the first time

@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.


How has nobody caught the cow in Prestonsburg?

How has nobody caught the cow in Prestonsburg?

Nobody can catch an Eastern Kentucky cow that has roamed the streets of Prestonsburg for almost a week.

Described as “a very active cow,” the heifer is believed to have made the trek from Johnson County to Floyd County.  The mobile bovine started showing up on security cameras Sunday night.  Even more remarkably, the cow is minding all local laws.

“As we’ve tracked it, it has minded road rules and stayed on the shoulder,” Prestonsburg police said. “She also browsed our downtown local shops from the street on her way through and seems impressed.”

After four days, the cow has still evaded capture.  How?  It makes absolutely no sense.

It isn’t the first time animals on the loose have made headlines.  One of the more exhilarating stories I ever covered as a student journalist involved a loose steer on UK’s campus.  A member of the rodeo team had to lasso the beast that caused traffic problems on Cooper Drive.

Floyd County High School probably doesn’t have a rodeo team waiting to respond to all loose cattle calls, but somebody’s gotta be able to contain the cow.  There’s only one possible explanation: the Prestonsburg cow has only been seen on nighttime security cameras.  The black cow must have transformed into a nocturnal beast in order to move swiftly from town to town throughout the night.

If Eric C. Conn could evade authorities for weeks, this cow will never be captured.
