07:36 AM ET 01.24 | According to Lexington police, an assistant on Kentucky's basketball staff was arrested Thursday. Brian W. Shorter, 45, a strength and conditioning assistant coach in his second season at UK, was charged with wanton endangerment and fourth-degree assault, police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said. Shorter was being held in the Fayette County jail. At 4:30 a.m. Thursday, officers were called to the Marriott Lexington North, 775 Newtown Court, where Shorter's wife had gone after she fled her home. "The victim said her husband had assaulted her and locked her in a garage," Roberts said. "During the course of an argument, the conflict escalated and became physical." The woman told police that while she was in the garage, Shorter "went to the garage and threw a bucket of water on her," Roberts said.

It was most likely an argument about money. Often times is. She was just rubbing it in that the players were making more than him.

That coach's behavior fits very well the type of culture that coach Cal likes to have in his teams.
