New UofL Foundation CFO Fired for Shoplifting from UofL Golf Club


The UofL Foundation can’t do anything right.  Two weeks after Robert Mims was hired to be the Foundation’s CFO, he was arrested for stealing from the UofL Golf Club.

Mims was arrested in Simpsonville and charged with theft or shoplifting over $10,000 and under $1 million.  Card Chronicle’s Mike Rutherford reports the incident happened after Mims inquired about a membership at the club, given the his new job at the university.

But wait, THERE’S MORE!

This isn’t the first time Mims had been caught stealing from a golf course.  Rutherford reports camera footage caught him stealing $800 of gear from another Louisville country club.  They took his photo and shared it with other golf courses, likely tipping off the UofL Golf Club staff today.

Just when you thought the stories coming from UofL couldn’t get any crazier, their Foundation’s new CFO got sticky fingers at the school’s golf club.  You can’t make this stuff up.
