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.”
