For UK and UofL fans, the rivalry often runs deep. But police say, they never expected to get called to a dialysis clinic for a fight between fans!
In fact, police are calling it a flagrant foul.
"I think this is a first at a dialysis center," Lt. Robert Swanigan commented while handing over the police reports.
Officers were called after a UK and UofL fan gave each other a full court press during treatment at the Georgetown Dialysis Clinic Monday.
"He just happened to think UofL would beat UK and he started to run his mouth," explained dialysis patient Ed Wilson. Wilson also happens to be a self-proclaimed die hard UK fan. "That's what started it."
But Charles Taylor, who was waiting to get hooked up to a machine saw things differently. "I didn't talk to him about the ball game; I was talking to another guy about the game," The UofL fan exclaimed. "He was meddling. And told me to shut up and gave me the finger!"
Both men admit they were in the zone, but never anticipated there'd be a power forward.
"I wasn't gonna take no more from him," UofL fan Taylor said.
UK fan Wilson explained "I'm sitting there hooked up to a machine and I can't do anything."
So, offended by Wilson, Taylor took action. "I went up to him and I hit him, " he said. "Didn't hit him that hard, but I hit him."
By the time police arrived, the fight was over.
"I'm sorry it even happened," Wilson said. "Hopefully, he won't come at the same time as me anymore."
Georgetown Police say their case is now closed and they investigated it as harassment.
Wilson says he's not filing charges against Taylor, but he does hope the Cats win.
I would LOVE to see Cal the Snake get beat severely.
A Memphis Tiger Fan!
Respectfully disagree. I’ve researched Cal inside and out and he is truely clean as a whistle. Honestly, read the NCAA reports and not the freakin heresay that the sports writers put out. Cal is the person who turned in Camby.
If Memphis fans want to be angry at anyone they need to be pissed off at Rose, after all he is the one who did the deed and lied to everyone, Cal, U of Memphis and the NCAA.
Rose may be a great bball player but it is terrible what he did to an entire school and his loyal team mates.
