Former UK Quarterback Accepts Plea Deal

Former UK quarterback Mike Hartline, a senior who was suspended for UK's 27-10 BBVA Compass Bowl loss to Pitt on January 8th, has made a plea deal in a disorderly conduct and alcohol intoxication case against him. Hartline accepted an offer of diversion, meaning he will be required to complete community service along with alcohol counseling, and, if he completes the requirement and program, he will have the charges expunged from his record. Police arrested Hartline and his girlfriend Ashley Carnes in December. Police say Hartline was on his way back from the Tin Roof Bar when an argument broke out inside a cab. Officers responded to Crescent Avenue and found the former Wildcat arguing with a group of girls. He tried to walk away, but police stopped him. They say his speech was slurred and he smelled of alcohol.
Carnes, who was also in possession of false identification in the arrest, accepted a plea deal similar to Hartline's on Monday.
