UK safety Ashely Lowery was cited for driving under the influence after his serious car accident in Georgia May 4. The Lexington Herald-Leader first reported details Wednesday.

Georgia authorities say Lowery had a blood alcohol level of .139 two hours after the accident. The legal limit in Georgia is .08. Lowery was also cited for failure to maintain lane, failure to use a safety belt and a license violation.

Lowery was thrown from his car in the crash which occurred in his hometown of Cleveland, Georgia at about 4:00 a.m. May 4. Reports says his Nissan Altima overturned five times.

UK spokesman Tony Neely told the Herald-Leader Lowery is still on the team. In a statement on behalf of coach Mark Stoops, "We'll let the legal process take its course and address it at the appropriate time."
