Former UK basketball player pleads not guilty to ticket scam charges

ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) - Former University of Kentucky
basketball player Derrick Millar has pleaded not guilty to theft
charges in Hardin County, where police have accused him of taking
money for basketball tickets he didn't have.
The News-Enterprise of Elizabethtown reports Millar is facing
four counts of felony theft by unlawful taking.
He is serving a 360-day sentence in Clark County after pleading
guilty to two charges of criminal attempt in January. He has also
pleaded guilty to theft in Fleming County.
Millar and former UK teammate Ed Davender have been accused of
running separate scams for promising tickets they didn't have.
Millar says his last name was misspelled on his college jersey.
He told a judge last week that his last name is with an "a," not
an "e," but has been misspelled for years.
