LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A University of Kentucky football player was arrested and charged with public intoxication early Sunday morning, just hours after the team's loss to Ole Miss.

Panton’s arraignment is scheduled for Nov. 20, the newspaper reported.

When asked for comment by WKYT, UK Football spokesperson Susan Lax said, "We are aware of the situation and we will address it on Monday.”
