Attorney to discuss offer with Gillispie

LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. -- Former Kentucky coach Billy Gillispie has been offered a plea bargain in his drunken driving case, a prosecutor said Wednesday.

Anderson County Attorney Bobbi Jo Lewis discussed the plea bargain in court during a pretrial conference with Gillispie's attorney, William Patrick. Gillispie did not attend.

Lewis said no agreement has been reached. Patrick said a "reasonable offer" was proposed but he needs to discuss it with his client.

Gillispie is scheduled to appear Oct. 5. He was arrested last month on a driving under the influence charge after refusing sobriety tests during an early-morning traffic stop in Anderson County. He later checked into an alcohol rehab program in Texas.

Gillispie was fired this season after two years coaching the Wildcats.
