UK quarterback Hartline arrested
Question of the Day
LEXINGTON, KY. (AP) - Kentucky quarterback Mike Hartline has pleaded not guilty to charges of disorderly conduct and alcohol intoxication charges after being arrested early Friday morning.
Attorney Jim Lowry submitted a not guilty plea on behalf of Hartline and Ashley Carnes in Fayette County District Court on Friday afternoon.
The two were arrested outside of a residence on Friday morning following an argument with another woman, Samantha Sheeran. A pretrial court date has been set for Jan. 24.
Carnes, 20, was also charged with disorderly conduct and alcohol intoxication as well as being 18 to 20 years old and using or attempting to use false identification to obtain alcohol.
Sheeran told police she was assaulted by both Hartline and Carnes, a Kentucky cheerleader. Lexington police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said police are unlikely to pursue the assault claim unless Sheeran files a complaint or decides to press charges.
The police report said there was no visible injury to Sheeran.
Kentucky spokesman Tony Neely said coach Joker Phillips is aware of the situation and will make a comment "at the appropriate time."
The Wildcats (6-6) return to practice Saturday in preparation for the BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham, Ala., on Jan. 8 against Pittsburgh.
Phillips had said Monday the plan was to start Hartline against the Panthers. Sophomore Morgan Newton and redshirt freshman Ryan Mossakowski were not expected to play.
Hartline's arrest outside a rental property near the Kentucky campus was the result of an altercation, Roberts said. Police had been called to the scene and one other arrest had been made, she said.
The 22-year-old senior was released from the Fayette County Correctional Center shortly after his arrest about 3 a.m. EST, Roberts said.
Last month, Hartline became part of an exclusive club of signal callers with 5,000 or more passing yards during the Wildcats' 49-21 win over Charleston Southern.
Hartline completed 15 of 24 passes for 272 yards and two touchdowns to surpass the 5,000 mark at 5,176 yards.
