(WHAS11) -- A former University of Kentucky assistant basketball coach found himself back in police custody Thursday morning.

Rod Strickland was arrested in downtown Lexington for driving on a suspended license.

His license was suspended in 2010 when he was arrested for drunk driving.

Strickland is also charged with not having registered license plates and for failing to signal. He was a UK assistant at the time of his 2010 arrest, but was reassigned to an administrative role within the program.


UK PR sent the following statement on Rod Strickland:


"Rod Strickland was pulled over this morning in Lexington on a routine traffic stop on the way to the office. According to police reports, he was pulled over for failure to signal and for driving with a suspended license. According to Strickland, his vehicle was properly registered and he produced his driver’s license at the scene. We are currently gathering information on whether his license was suspended due to a clerical error which led to his arrest."
