Less than a year after his Evansville Purple Aces came into Rupp Arena and stunned No. 1 ranked Kentucky, Walter McCarty has a warrant out for his arrest. The arrest warrant is for a civil case, not a criminal one.

According to the Courier and Press, a warrant was issued for McCarty after he failed to appear in court. McCarty has supposedly defaulted on two loans, resulting in two lawsuits and over $125,000 worth of debt. The bank loans McCarty allegedly defaulted on were a $45,000 loan signed in 2018.

McCarty did not appear for his 8:45 a.m. Thursday hearing in the Vanderburgh Superior Court despite being issued a show cause order because he had also skipped an Aug. 20 hearing.

McCarty was fired by Evansville shortly after his stunning win against Kentucky due to a Title IX investigation. A female University of Evansville student also alleged that McCarty sexually assaulted her.

According to the Courier and Press, McCarty has once again been ordered to appear in court on Nov. 20 for a collections lawsuit by First Federal Savings Bank.

McCarty started his season 9-4 at Evansville last year before being fired.
