LANCASTER - The Wayne County man charged with disorderly conduct after rushing the field during a Garrard County High School football game is expected back in court Monday for a pretrial hearing.
Kirby Thompson, 50, of Monticello, pleaded not guilty earlier in the month after being advised that more charges could follow.
During a Friday night game on Oct. 19, Thompson apparently got upset after a Wayne County player received a jarring hit. Thompson ran onto the field, according to Deputy Sheriff Brandon Conley's report.
Thompson was charged with disorderly conduct, but because some accounts had Thompson also striking a player, a television station's video recording of the game was requested to be reviewed.
County Attorney Jeff Moss said Thompson was prepared to plead guilty during arraignment on Nov. 5, but Moss advised him not to. Moss said because the videotape had not been reviewed yet, he told Thompson that further charges could be made.
