Date set for Gillispie DUI trial

LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (AP) - A judge has set a February trial date
in the drunken-driving case against former Kentucky basketball
coach Billy Gillispie.
Gillispie's attorney was in Anderson County District Court on
Monday to request a delay because Gillispie hadn't yet decided
whether to agree to a plea bargain.
Judge Linda Armstrong scheduled a final preliminary hearing for
Nov. 2 and set a trial date for Feb. 10.
Gillispie's attorney, William Patrick, declined afterward to say
what sparked the request for a delay. County Attorney Bobbi Jo
Lewis declined to comment.
Gillispie was arrested Aug. 27 and charged with DUI after
refusing sobriety tests during a traffic stop in which officers
said they smelled alcohol on his breath.
Gillispie was fired this year after a rocky two-year tenure in
which the Wildcats went 40-27.
