Louisville tight end suspended after arrest

Things just keep getting worse for the University of Louisville. Today, the UofL football program suspended tight end Kemari Averett after he was charged with wanton endangerment and assault in the fourth degree.

“Kemari Averett has been suspended immediately from all football activities per further investigation,”  Bobby Petrino said in a release. “We work hard every day to develop a culture of accountability that everyone in our program must live up to. Any conduct that does not meet these expectations will not be tolerated within the Louisville football program.”

The hypocrisy of that comment coming from Bobby Petrino is certainly rich. Averett has eight catches this season for 65 yards and two touchdowns. He is being held on a $10,000 bond at the Louisville Metro Corrections Department.

    And he seemed to be saying all that without irony. How did he manage to keep a straight face?

    It’s pretty easy to do the right thing when you’re terrible. If they were competing in the ACC and he was a significant player on the team, we all know that his punishment would have been light.

    Don’t forget. We had a player arrested for selling blow.

    1. Booby Petrino

      Don’t forget, this dude was arrested for domestic violence.

    2. runningunnin.454

      It’s being reported he held a gun to his girlfriend’s head, and threatened to kill her.

    3. yitbos93640

      Don’t forget he was also kicked off the team and out school.

    4. TWillrocks

      Yo Tree dude…how much was he charging for the blow?

    LOL @ Luether!!

    Those two charges are code for “made up charges”.

    Perhaps he drifted through a stop sign.

    Cop sees it. Pulls him over.

    The cop doesn’t like the “attitude” of the driver, makes him get out, starts to get physical with him or threaten him with arrest for “wanton endangerment” for drifting through the stop sign. The driver rightly protests, “you’re gonna arrest me for barely running a stop sign? That’s bulls***.”

    The cop pushes him up against the car and the driver stiffens and is big and strong enough so that simply not budging is “an act of assault”, and so he is arrested and charged by the thug cop, who’s doing what he’s BEEN TRAINED to do, which is abuse his authority.

    What I’ve described happens ROUTINELY all over Amerika every single day. Don’t dare question authority or not comply with an abuser’s authority!

    Who knows what really happened, but the odds are that the cop violated the driver’s rights during the encounter and trumped up one or both charges.

    It’s easy money for the county. Low hanging fruit. And the cop’s boss pats him on the back with an approving “addaboy!”.

      The assault charge was for domestic violence but thank you for your spiel on police brutality. But hey I’m sure this guy is innocent and it was all the cop’s fault

    2. Christians4Trump

      stupid post,,, cops face danger everyday and in my eyes they cant do no wrong !!!

    3. playmorezeppelin

      I guess if police can’t do no wrong, that means they never do anything right. Is that what you mean?

    4. ukjaybrat

      Without any facts whatsoever, you concocted a scenario that the cop was in the wrong and this kid was completely innocent and then convinced yourself it was true. You’re part of the problem.

      Thanks for your post DelrayCat!! That is you, right!

      You MUST be a Democ Rat…

      I said nothing about the defendant. He may be guilty of sin, one of the most vilest of creatures.

      My post was intended to invoke critical thinking, specifically in regards to those two charges, which are the very basis for rampant abuse of authority by government run amuck.

    There are bad cops out there let’s not act like there’s not. But what they do is very dangerous especially in the bigger cities. I’m grateful for the police and the job they do. Don’t let a few bad apples spoil the whole batch.

    Underdog is an idiot. Unless you were an eyewitness close enough to hear everything said all you’ve done is inflame passions. Let due process run its course and stop doing a “drive by” on social media. For Pete’s sake your comment was inappropriate on so many levels. Perhaps you might evaluate your own prejudices b4 criticizing law enforcement. So sick of politics everywhere. Save your worthless crap for some other platform. Go Big Blue.

    Under dog is not an idiot , he may have been a victim of crooked police work and wants to voice his displeasure . I understand what he’s saying . He clearly states that it may or may not have happened .

    1. secrick

      Yes he is an idiot and you may be if you think his post makes sense.

    2. 4everUKblue

      I understand what Underdog’s saying, pretty easy to see if you open your eyes, stop listening to MSM and do your own research. Maybe this guy’s guilty but there are plenty scenarios like the one Underdog’s describing.

    3. ClutchCargo

      4everUKblue, maybe you missed the part where he put a gun to his girlfriend’s head and threatened to kill her. What part of that situation has anything to do with underdog’s made up story?

    4. 4everUKblue

      Read my the last sentence of my comment again Clutch.

    5. 4everUKblue

      I was pointing out that Underdog’s made up story may not apply to this incident but this scenario does happen.

    6. ClutchCargo

      And I get that. But this story is about one real incident that is not hypothetical in nature. Let’s not minimize the seriousness of what apparently happened to someone’s daughter by going on a rant against “police brutality.”

    7. 4everUKblue

      I was not minimizing anything that allegedly happened nor was I ranting about anything.

      Thanks. I’ll take a look.

      Above, I just took the opportunity to give a hypothetical situation that happens all over our police state — called America — EVERY SINGLE DAY.

      As a wise lover of Liberty once said, “When the government fears the people, there is Liberty; when the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”

    2. 4everUKblue

      Agreed. Did you ever get a chance to check out crow777?

      Me too has made it harder for people like Petrino to cover up these kind of things.

  12. Thetruthshallsetbennyfree

    He must have thought he was needed to think he’d get by with something like that. If he was Petrino would normally have paid his bail, got his trial pushed back to after the season, bribed the local paper to cover it up, and suspended him one game for violating team rules.
