Arrest warrant issued for Walter McCarty after missed court date

It has not been a good year for Walter McCarty. Almost one year after his Evansville Purple Aces upset Kentucky at Rupp Arena, a warrant has been issued for his arrest for failure to appear in court.

According to the Courier & Press, McCarty has defaulted on two loans, resulting in two lawsuits and a debt of over $125,000. After failing to appear in court in one of the lawsuits back in August, a show cause order was issued, but McCarty did not show up to his hearing this morning, hence the arrest warrant. Police in Indiana are now directed to arrest him in plain sight. Oof.

This is just the latest problem for McCarty, who was fired by Evansville amid a Title IX investigation in January and allegations that he sexually assaulted a female student. According to Evansville president Christopher Pietruszkiewicz, an external investigation “behavior contrary to the core values of the university,” and “persistent and troublesome facts regarding Mr. McCarty’s conduct, including attempts to improperly influence witnesses in the investigation.” McCarty’s last known address is Lincoln, Massachusetts outside Boston.

Life comes at you fast.

    He played about a decade in the NBA, held high paying assistant jobs for several years, was head coach of a D-1 school yet he has no money to make payments on loans totaling $125,000. It is sad, but difficult for me to feel sorry for him, especially if he also assaulted a woman.

    Hopefully he gets some help. I have lost some good friends because they thought they couldn’t work it out.

    I’ve heard he knocked a girl up and when he decided not to take care of her or the baby that’s when the assault claim happened. Not saying the assault claim isn’t true because at this time there’s no proof it’s the same person, just saying circumstances may change things.

    So sad that someone in his position could sink so low so fast.
