UK’s Mark Crawford arrested on traffic charges


The “scourge” that is suspended licenses reared its ugly head yet again this weekend, with a member of the Kentucky football program the latest to fall victim to the “insidious” traffic offense.

According to the Lexington Herald-Leader, Wildcats defensive tackle Mark Crawford was arrested Sunday evening and charged with driving on a suspended license.  Additionally, the junior was hit with charges of careless driving and failure to maintain required insurance.

Crawford was cited after he collided with another vehicle and was pulled over by Lexington police.

The school is aware of the arrest, and said head coach Joker Phillips will handle any punishment internally.

In 2010, Crawford played in 10 games with five starts.  He was suspended for the final two games for violating unspecified team rules.
