The off-field issues for Kentucky football just won’t seem to go away as a new report came out today for an accident involving receiver Josh Ali.

Eric Crawford and Jason Riley of WDRB released a report on Wednesday morning that goes through the details of charges pressed against the starting wide-out in regards to an accident, which occurred on February 12th.

The charges according to the report are, “leaving the scene of an accident without rendering aid and driving without insurance earlier this year.” On top of these charges, Ali is also dealing with a lawsuit from the Kentucky Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company that was filed on June 29th. Per WDRB, that lawsuit claims Ali, “owes damages paid to a man he rear ended in the February 12th wreck.”

A month after the accident on March 9th, Ali talked with the Lexington Police Department and stated he was “falling asleep” as the accident occurred and he ended up rear-ending the vehicle in front of him.

Per the report on April 14th, he was also given a failure to maintain insurance charge.

He is set to appear in the Fayette District Court next Monday, Sept 20th, for both charges. Both charges are classified as traffic offenses.

Ali is currently the second leading receiver on this revamped Kentucky offense. Through two games this season, he has recorded seven catches for 166 yards, and one touchdown.
