Kameron Davenport, 20, is accused by the U of L Police of trespassing and damaging the stadium on Monday, according to an arrest warrant. He also allegedly injured an officer and ejected the window of a police vehicle.
According to the citation, officers found Davenport in the field of Papa John Stadium, which is fenced and locked, around 11:30 in the morning. He was taken into custody and began to resist an officer when placed in the back of a police car.
Davenport fought with the officer and caused an unspecified injury on the officer's arm. While he was in the backseat of the car, he turned violent and threw the back window of the police car, the citation said.
He "created a disturbance causing the workers in the area to flee and become fearful," the citation alleges. The estimated damage to L's U-property was $ 1,200, police said.
Track U spokesman Rocco Gasparro said the initial estimate for damages is $ 21,000 and could be higher as they continue to evaluate the stadium.
He said that a wrapping surrounding the field on the lower level was broken for about 70 meters. One of the rotating signs showing sponsored material was also damaged. There is no schedule on when they could be fixed.
Davenport was charged with one count every disorderly first-degree conduct, resistance to detention, first-degree felony, third-degree assault of a police officer, and first-degree felony. It was booked in Metro Corrections at 1:15 p.m.
He is scheduled to be charged in the Jefferson District Court on Friday, records show. He is being held in Metro Corrections for a $ 5,000 cash bonus.
