LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Katina Powell, the author behind "Breaking Cardinal Rules," the book that could lead to the vacation of Louisville's 2013 national championship, was cited by police for stealing from Walmart on Wednesday.
According to her attorney, Powell was cited for stealing a toothbrush from the Walmart on Outer Loop near New Cut Road. In total, she was cited for stealing $32.12 worth of merchandise. A source tells WDRB News Powell and her daughter Lindsay were stopped by Walmart security on their way out of the store. The charge is theft under $500, which is a misdemeanor. She denies the claim, but she'll be in court on March 7.
Powell's daughter Lindsay was arrested in September for breaking into her aunt's home and punching her in the face. She was convicted of criminal trespassing and assault.
In her book released in 2015, Katina Powell claimed she hosted 22 stripping and sex parties from 2010 to 2014 inside Billy Minardi Hall, a dorm for athletes on the University of Louisville campus. She alleged that Andre McGee, a former director of basketball operations for the men's basketball team, arranged the parties and paid her $10,000 for supplying dancers.
The final decision from the NCAA’s Infractions Appeals Committee is expected soon.
