Katina Powell Arrested in a Louisville Football Shirt


Following a court appearance, Katina Powell was arrested today while wearing a Louisville football t-shirt.

The infamous Breaking Cardinal Rules author was booked at Louisville Metro Corrections just before 2:00 p.m. on a pair of forgery charges.  She will be arraigned tomorrow for criminal possession of a forged instrument and theft by deception.

The arrest reportedly happened while Powell appeared in court for an eviction hearing, after her daughter allegedly pulled a handgun on man in the front-yard of the home.  Powell initially missed the scheduled Thursday morning hearing for an alleged panic attack.  She eventually got to the courthouse at 1:00, was evicted, then arrested.

It’s not the first time Powell’s had a run-in with the law since her book blew the whistle on the Louisville basketball team.  In January she was arrested, accused of stealing toothbrushes from a local Wal-Mart.


We now know the reason why Powell was arrested.  According to the Courier-Journal, Powell is accused of stealing three checks and cashing them for $2,900.  The person she allegedly stole them from is an ex-boyfriend who wants her back.

“I want her in my life,” Thomas Tyre, an area dentist, told the CJ. “I’m sad about what happened.”

    By the looks of things, she should’ve been stealing hairbrushes.

    I wish her the best honestly. Hope she gets it together. She did the Commonwealth a great service by getting rid of Sick Rick.

    I can’t feel ‘sorry’ for anyone pimping their daughters out. But, I am happy one pathetic human took out another pathetic human in this drama!

    She should get the max penalty. I’m disgusted how many people here forget she was running a prostitution ring with underage girls and got away with it

      Wow, why in the world would you date a Dentist and steal from them?? I mean from this guys words, she had him hooked anyways, and he probably would have handed her the money, for like, EVER.
      Guess it could be possible she entertains the Football Team now and doesn’t have time for said Dentist. Football teams are large in number, I suppose.
      Hey Doc……Squirts are cheaper at a conscience store, in case you were wondering!!!

      Back in the day, barbers served as dentist.

    She should have released a book about how she worked with Clint Hurtt to get Bibwater and the well paid Miami boys to commit to Little Louie after showing no interest tell the most corrupt bag man in football arrived(it’s well documented by some of the biggest players from the Miami scandal that Hurtt was the middle man even though the NCAA had no clue). Even if it wasn’t true people would have believed it.
