City of I Lexington sued
over ticket sales arrest

By Dariush Shafa

THE xtNtucxv «mm

The city of Lexington is being
sued by a Paris. Ky. man after the
man was arrested for trying to
sell tickets outside Rupp Arena
before a U K basketball game.

(‘raig A, Wilson. in. filed suit
in US. District (‘ourt against the
city March ll. saying his First
Amendment right to free speech
had been violated and he was
subjected to unlawful search and
seizure by Lexington police offi

Wilson was one of ‘30 people
arrested before a UK men's bas-
ketball game Jan. 1 In an opera
tion spearheaded by the Lexing-
ton Police to curb ticket scalping

selling tickets above face value.
The Lexington law also forbids
selling tickets below face value,

Wilson was charged with vio.
lating a city ordinance that pro-
hibits selling anything includ-
ing tickets. food or merchandise

within a two-block radius of
Rupp Arena before a game with-
out a vendor's license.

Wilson was arrested with tWo
UK tickets in his possession as
well as $40 in cash.

"He (the officer) said. ‘Where‘s
the rest of your money? Where's
the rest of your tickets?” Wilson
said. ”One of the things that hurt
the most was their attitude. They
(the officers) thought they were
making a score."

Wilson said he was selling the
tickets because two people could-
n‘t come. Wilson was asking $15
for the 822 tickets. and the $40
was for dinner. he said.

Wilson pleaded guilty under a
plea agreement in return for hav-
ing his seized money and proper-
ty returned. Now Wilson has filed
a lawsuit. which he hopes be-
comes certified as a class-action

lawsuit. The lawsuit must be ap.
proved as a class-action suit so
others can join in on the same
lawsuit without filing multiple
suits for the same reasons.

Lexington Mayor Teresa Isaac
said the case is in litigation now
and declined to comment.

Wilson wants to clear his
record. he said.

“My concern is. I‘ve never
had a police record in my life. and
to receive one over this?" Wilson
said. "My biggest concern is get-
ting this reversed."

Wilson said he believes offi-
cers should have used their judg-

"They could have just given
me a warning.“ he said. “That
Would have been a little more up
the alley of fairness.”

Wilson said he was unaware
of the city ordinance against sell-
ing tickets within two blocks of
Rupp Arena and said the police
shouldn't be targeting people who
don‘t have any intention of
breaking the law.

“They know who the profes-
sional scalpers are." he said. “I
had no idea this was a law or else
I wouldn‘t have done it.

“I want the city to realize and
the police to realize that you can't
enforce a law that hits the people
you shouldn‘t be hitting.“

Wilson said he believes his
case has a good chance of suc-
ceeding with the help of local at-
torney John Helmuth and Michi-
gan attorney Thomas Cecil. who
is pursuing a similar case in that
state. Attempts to reach Helmuth
and Cecil were unsuccessful.

“I‘m confident." Wilson said.
“'ibm thinks they're going to
clear this away very quickly"

the Morris play changed the momentum of
a game that had been tight throughout the
second half.

“That was just a smart play by Ran-

This was not the blank-faced. quiet
Azubuike. This was not the man whose
toughness UK head coach Titbby Smith
questioned last season. This was not a man
to be denied.

Less than a minute into the second half.
Azubuike streaked down court for a layup
to tie the game.

He clapped his hands and encouraged
his Cats to turn it up even more. They fol-

finish when they had to. After regaining
the lead shortly after halftime. UK turned
the ball over and missed easy opportuni-
ties to put the Bearcats away for good at
key moments.

Then. with 8:48 left. Azubuike missed a
w ideopen dunk on a fast break that would
have given the Cats a 58-51 lead.

“We had a chance to put them away a
couple of times and couldn‘t." said junior
guard Patrick Sparks. “And then Kelenna
missed that dunk. and they took a lot out
of our system there. But we showed a lot
of toughness and just stayed with it."

Sparks scored the first two points of
the game as UK jumped out to an 1H) lead
in the opening minutes. He also added two
early 3-pointers after going 0-for-eight
from behind the arc in his last two games.

But Cincinnati chipped away at the
(‘ats' lead by forcing eight UK turnovers in
the last seven minutes of the first half.
converting on the other end to take a 35-33
advantage into halftime.

Sparks wasn't surprised by Cincin~
nati's comeback or the game's series of
unorthodox plays.


“We knew it was going to be like that."
he said. “And whenever you have a bunch
of athletes out there on the court. any
thing can happen. It was a hectic game.
but 1 think at the end we just settled down
and executed."

But junior guard Ravi Moss disagreed
with the notion that the contest was an
ugly one.

“i wouldn‘t say it was ugly at all." Moss
said. “I‘d say it was a great college basket-
ball game. and that‘s what college basket-
ball is all about. Two teams fighting it out
and being physical and grinding it down
until the end.“

Whatever it was. senior forward Chuck
Hayes had been waiting for it all season.

The game saw all five starters score in
double figures and 13 Cats hit the court in
the first half A a team effort Hayes said he
couldn't have been mom proud of.

“We knew we had it in us — this type
of game where everybody contributes and
it’s a total team effort.“ Hayes said. “And it
couldn‘t have come at a better time. It

came at a perfect time.”


A few minutes later. Azubuike got the
ball at the top of the key and nearly lost
his footing. He steadied himself and looked
Bearcat guard Jihad Muhammad right in
the eye.

And then he banged in a 3-pointer.

This was the player everyone had been
waiting for. This was the player who could
lead a team. This was the player UK need-

“1 think it's really important.“ Hayes
said of Azubuike's aggression. “The guy.
he's a scorer; he‘s a leader. People are
watching him , he knows that. He knows
the eyes are on him. and he's done a good
job of taking it in stride."

Against Cincinnati. Azubuike played
every minute in the second half. He did
everything. He scored. he grabbed re-
bounds and he locked down on defense.

He finished with 19 points and seven re~
bounds. but he provided more than that 777

he showed the fiery emotion these Cats
have needed all season.

In a grudge match against Cincinnati.
Azubuike answered the Bearcats' tough-
ness with unparalleled intensity.

“I knew I had to produce for my
