Richie Farmer was once one of the most popular men in the state of Kentucky, as he and “The Unforgettables” took Duke to the wire in the classic Elite Eight game that ended with Christian Laettner’s shot.
His post-playing career has been filled with trouble and continued on Thursday, as Farmer was arrested in London, Ky. on charges of driving under the influence, per WKYT.com.
Farmer, who once was the Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner, served a 27-month sentence in prison for misappropriation of government funds starting in 2014.
