Former UK basketball player Soulemayne "Jules" Camara, 33, pleaded not guilty to Theft by Unlawful Taking and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia charges during his arraignment Friday afternoon in Fayette District Court, according to court documents.

The 6'-11" native of Senegal, is accused of taking a friend's handgun and not returning it after repeated requests from the friend, according to court documents.  That led to a felony theft warrant.

According to a Lexington Police report, Camara had a crack pipe with him when he was arrested on the theft warrant last night at an apartment.

This is not Camara's first run-in with the law.  He was redshirted one season while at UK following a DUI arrest. 

Court records show Camara was arrested again in Lexington for DUI in 2010.

Camara played at Kentucky from 1998-to-2003.
