U of L's Ware Pleads Guilty to Speeding Charge

University of Louisville basketball player Kevin Ware has pleaded guilty to a speeding charge and was fined $268 by a Barren County Circuit Court judge.

The junior guard appeared in court today to face speeding and reckless driving charges. Ware's case was rescheduled after he missed last Monday's original date.

Kentucky State Police ticketed Ware on Oct. 26 for driving 95 mph in a construction zone on Interstate 65 while heading to Bowling Green in 2013 Dodge Challenger that Ware says he borrowed from another U of L student.

The Barren County Court clerk told The Associated Press that the speeding charge was amended to 25 mph over the limit.

Ware must pay the fine before May 23.
