University of Louisville coach arrested on a fugitive charge
Cortney Braswell, 31, is a quality control coach for the University of Louisville Cardinals is facing some legal problems in Tennessee. He was recently hired in January by the team.
A citation says Braswell was arrested Wednesday in Louisville on a fugitive charge, specifying no warrant was required.
According to WDEF, he is wanted on accusations of theft of property in the Chattanooga area.
The Tennessee Comptroller’s Office found that Braswell “pocketed at least $2,480 in payments” he received from two semi-pro football teams that had paid to use his former school’s field for their home games, according to the USA Today.
The Comptroller’s Office investigation revealed that Braswell was paid “at least” $1,480 by a women’s semi-pro team in 2016 and 2017, as well as $1,000 by a men’s semi-pro team in 2017.
Louisville hates being in the news, so I doubt this will play out well for Braswell.
