UK tears up fans' parking tickets

A crowd estimated at more than 3,500 was in Memorial Coliseum on Sunday to see No. 22 Kentucky upset 12th-ranked Florida in volleyball.

Many who parked in a lot next to the Coliseum found parking tickets when they returned to their cars.

The R-1 lot is reserved for students with residential permits and is controlled for permit-only parking 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

According to a story in the Kentucky Kernel, UK's student newspaper, UK volleyball coach Craig Skinner offered to pay for all the citations.

UK Parking & Transportation Services took Skinner off the hook Monday.

UK has agreed to void all tickets issued in that lot during the match. Any questions may be directed to 257-8000.

The volleyball team will play its final regular-season home match at 7 p.m. on Nov. 28 versus Tennessee.
