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.
