UK fan busted for vandalism

Not much is known about the suspect, but he has to be a University of Kentucky fan.

Not a good thing in Louisville.

Under lock and key

David Baker, a 27-year-old resident of Jefferson County, has been charged with 17 counts for allegedly keying cars and slashing tires on 43 vehicles near Belknap Campus, as well as damaging a couple of dozen bicycles. The incident followed the University of Louisville-Kentucky football game Sept. 4.

The culprit involved also used a knife to scrawl the words, “UK Wins Big Time,” on many cars after a seven-point UofL loss. Like UK wasn’t a heavy favorite going into the game.

Video showed a rotundo brandishing a knife and quickly moving from car to car before driving off in a pickup truck.

The suspect is resting uncomfortably in Jefferson County Corrections, unable to post a $50,000 cash bond, with no UK fans stepping up thus far to provide assistance.

If guilty, how should he be made to pay for the crime?

    He should be made to attend a U of L football game and apologize to the Louisville students at halftime. He would get a day off from his five years in detention, of course.

    He should have the Cardinal Bird tattoo on his forehead!

    Make him post a YouTube apologizing for his actions and for being a UK fan, and never be allowed to attend a Kentucky or Louisville game. If this is guy who did it, he’s trash and deserves to be treated as such.

    For one year, strap him to a chair 12 hours/day, his head clamped in place and eyelids held open with clips. An aid uses an eye dropper to add artificial tears. Position the chair facing a 60″ HD TV from 5′ away. All UofL victories over the Kats in the modern era in both football and basketball continuously play on the video. Meanwhile, The Fight Song and All Hail alternately play continuously through earphones.

    I went to highschool with him. He is a UofL fan more than he is a UofK believe it or not. He was probably whiskey bent. He likes to tear things up when he’s drunk. Thats just Baker.

      Wow, now that’s weird. But his actions that night make one seriously doubt whether he could ever be a UofL fan.

    I liked Toms idea best. He can’t be allowed to behave like that and “be for both” teams.
