WKU DC gets busted for DUI in Baton Rouge, still coaches against LSU

Baton Rouge is already known to be party central on game day. Even opposing coaches are getting in on the action.

At around 1 a.m. Saturday morning -- the day of Western Kentucky’s game against LSU -- WKU defensive coordinator Lance Guidry was arrested by Baton Rouge police for driving while intoxicated with a blood alcohol content of 0.123, the Western Kentucky Herald is reporting via documents obtained by the Baton Rouge Advocate.

A police report states that Guidry was swerving in his vehicle and failed a field sobriety test. He was booked in East Baton Rouge Parish Prison and hit with a second-degree DWI charge. Guidry had been arrested twice before for DWI’s.

Hours later, though, Guidry was in the press box of Tiger Stadium coaching his defense against LSU. The Hilltoppers kept it close for a half before eventually losing 42-9. WKU’s athletic office and coach Willie Taggart had no comment on the arrest.
