Report: Tai Wynyard attended UK parties with armed bodyguard

Mrs. Tyler Thompsonover 3 years


Earlier today, we found out Tai Wynyard is suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules, and now, we may have a clearler picture as to what happened. The Courier-Journal is reporting that members of UK fraternities and sororities messaged each other last month about Wynyard attending parties with a person with a gun, who was supposedly there to protect him.

An excerpt from those group messages, as obtained by the Courier-Journal:

The Group Me message circulated by sorority members in January stated: “there is a (person) showing up to parties with the basketball player Tai Wynyard. (The person) showed up last night to our rush party and … had a gun … said he was ‘protecting’ Wynyard. … If you go out tonight and see (person) DO NOT APPROACH (person). Share this to EVERY SISTER.”

Well then. UK’s Interfraternity Council has declined comment.
