Former UK Basketball Star Edward Davender Arrested

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Lexington police say they have arrested
former University of Kentucky basketball star Edward Davender in
connection with a scam to sell fraudulent season tickets for the
upcoming season.
According to a police statement, Davender is charged with three
felony counts of theft by deception and one count of trafficking in
a controlled substance within 1,000 yards of a school.
He allegedly was accepting advance payments for tickets that
weren't available for him to sell. Police say three victims have
been identified.
UK basketball spokesman DeWayne Peevy said he had just heard of
the situation Tuesday and had no immediate comment.
The 43-year-old Davender played for the Wildcats from 1984
through 1988, including two years as an all-Southeastern Conference
player.
