Former Scott County Basketball Star Ordered To Go To Jail

A former Scott County high school basketball star, already facing drug charges, finds himself in more legal trouble.

Bud Mackey had been out on bond, since being arrested last fall.

That's when police say he brought cocaine onto the Scott County High School campus.

But according to court documents, Mackey wasn't showing up for classes at Harmony Community School in Cincinnati.

He was ordered to attend school, and live with family, as part of the bond agreement.

The Commonwealth Attorney claimed Mackey is doing neither.

So Monday, the judge found Mackey in contempt of court. He sentenced him to 60 days behind bars.

Mackey is still awaiting trial on the original drug trafficking charge from his arrest at school last fall.
