UofL tight ends coach arrested for DUI, wanton endangerment

University of Louisville tight ends coach Chris Klenakis was arrested early Sunday morning after being pulled over for reckless driving. Klenakis will face four charges after blowing a .165. He was pulled over and booked in Shelby County, and according to the police report nearly struck a wall that construction workers were working on at the time. The police report also states he had to be forcibly removed from his car after refusing to exit the vehicle. During his field sobriety test he wandered into oncoming traffic and just missed being hit by a truck. Along with the DUI he was also charged with reckless driving, wanton endangerment (1st degree) and possession of an open alcoholic beverage.

Klenakis joined UofL’s staff in 2014 and was originally the offensive line coach before being moved to oversee the tight ends.

Klenakis’ arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday at 1:30 p.m.

UPDATE- UofL has placed Klenakis on administrative leave.

      I don’t think we can be sure about that… his boss definitely shouldn’t throw the first stone on this one. That said, it’s not a good look.

      Lol, petrino wouldnt suspend a player for more than a half for such an offense; i’d be shocked if he let a coach go.

    You’re making good enough money as a position coach in D-1 football that you can afford a Lyft/Uber and have somebody take you back to get your car the next morning. Don’t be an idiot, get a ride home.

    Ah, the mod bot has put me on double-secret probation, I see. To summarize: I can’t even muster up a joke about this guy, because it’s no laughing matter. He would make a fine crash test dummy, if only he could be sentenced to that.

    Being the Cards, it was more like “wantin’ endangerment”.
