Police arrest four on robbery charges

UK police arrested four people early Saturday morning in connection with two separate cases of armed robbery on UK’s campus Tuesday.

UK police arrested and charged Lexington residents Charles Davis, 18, Kevin Taylor, 18, and Jeremy Brown, 19, with first-degree robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery. All three, none of whom are UK students, are being held in Fayette County Detention Center.

The fourth suspect, whose name was not released because he or she is a juvenile, was charged with two counts of first-degree robbery.

The first incident occurred on Keeneland Drive outside of Keeneland Hall, according to police reports. A male student reported to UK police that he had been robbed by four people at about 2:10 a.m. on Tuesday.

The second incident occurred at about 2:50 a.m. on Tuesday, according to police reports. A male student reported he was assaulted and robbed at the intersection of University Drive and Complex Drive.

Law school to hold panel on cartoon

UK College of Law will host a panel discussion on the controversial Kernel cartoon today, one month after its publication.

“When is Race a Laughing Matter? A Community Discussion of the Kentucky Kernel Cartoon Controversy,” will be held at 6 p.m. in the College of Law courtroom and will focus on the Oct. 5 cartoon, which likened UK’s Greek system to a slave auction.

Second-year UK law student Brad Fletcher, who drew the cartoon, is one of six panelists participating in the discussion.

The other panelists are Joel Pett, the editorial cartoonist for the Lexington Herald-Leader; Delano Massey, a reporter for the Herald-Leader; Joanne Melish, a UK history professor; Bob Houlihan, a local attorney; and Jasmine Whitlow, a UK freshman who participated in the initial protest.
