Case against six UK football players waived to grand jury


LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56/WKYT) –The case against six UK football players charged with burglary is moving on to a grand jury.

The preliminary hearing was held Wednesday morning. This is the second step for these six players through the court system.

Last Friday, all six entered not guilty pleas and now, in court Wednesday, they waived their rights to a preliminary hearing, instead, opting to go straight to the grand jury.

This all stems from a situation last March.

Police records show on March 6, three suspects showed up to a frat party, uninvited, and were asked to leave by the residents. Those suspects became upset and threatened that they would be back. Later that night, the three returned with three more suspects and allegedly forced their way into the home.

One witness told police that one of the suspects, later identified as Vito Tisdale, was pointing a gun at one of the victims.

Police were called and all six were arrested.
