UK junior safety Ashely Lowery was under the influence of alcohol at the time of his May car crash according to a police report obtained by the Lexington Herald-Leader today...and cited for DUI among other charges.
The report states the results of a urine test indicated Lowery's blood alcohol content nearly two hours after the 4 a-m accident on May 4th was .139. The Georgia state legal limit is .08.
The 6'1, 219-pounder out of Cleveland, Georgia was thrown from his vehicle nearly 100 feet away from the car's final resting point after turning over five times in a diagram of the accident in the police report.
UK Athletics released a statement for coach Mark Stoops saying the program will let the legal process play out and address any reprimands once it does.
It could take anywhere from six months to a year for the case to go to court.
Lowery is 20 years old.
