Kentucky basketball strength and conditioning coach charged with assault on his wife
Brian Shorter, a part-time assistant strength and conditioning coach for the University of Kentucky's basketball team, was arrested early Thursday morning accused of shoving his wife into an unheated garage and throwing water on her.
A source said there was an argument between Shorter and his wife at their home on Russell Springs, early Thursday morning. According to the victim, it came to a head when Shorter pushed her into their garage, which had no heat, and locked her in there. The victim claimed that about 40 minutes later, Shorter returned and threw a bucket of water on her. She, then, apparently made her way to a nearby hotel where she called for help.
Shorter was arrested at his home.
Shorter is in the Fayette County Detention Center, charged with assault and wanton endangerment.
It's hard to envision Shorter having a job after this alleged incident.
