As Vito Tisdale faces burglary and wanton endangerment charges as a result of a fight at a fraternity party in March, he reportedly was cited for marijuana possession recently as well.
According to WDRB reporter Jason Riley, Tisdale was cited for possession of marijuana near his hometown of Bowling Green in July.

From attorney @WalkemJohnny: "in the felony case the charges were filed after the marijuana guilty plea, but actual felony charge offense date is before. you can't be revoked for something that happened before you were put on probation."— Jason Riley (@JasonRileyWDRB) August 23, 2021
Tisdale, a 4-star recruit in the Class of 2020 out of Bowling Green High School, signed with the Kentucky Wildcats while holding scholarship offers from Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, LSU, Texas A&M and Florida State among others. He appeared in 10 games as a true freshman while making 20 tackles, six of which came in the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl win over NC State.
While he wasn’t projected to be a starter, Tisdale was expected to have a big role in Kentucky’s defense this season, then likely start in 2022 after Yusuf Corker, Tyrell Ajian and Davonte Robinson graduate.
