LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A former central Kentucky high school
basketball star has pleaded not guilty to a felony weapons charge.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that Jonathan "Bud" Mackey
entered his plea to being a felon in possession of a handgun in
Fayette Circuit Court on Thursday.
Lexington police arrested Mackey on May 14, after responding to
a call of shots fired, and finding Mackey with a handgun.
He pleaded guilty last fall to an amended charge of first-degree
possession of a controlled substance.
Mackey was the Sweet Sixteen's most valuable player while on
Scott County's 2007 state championship team. He had planned to play
basketball at Indiana University.
His next court date is scheduled for July 6.
