Police: Man damaged U of L police car, Papa John's Stadium

A Louisville man was arrested after authorities said he damaged University of Louisville property, including at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.

Kameron Davenport, 20, is accused by U of L Police of trespassing at and damaging the stadium on Monday, according to an arrest citation. He also allegedly injured an officer and kicked out the window of a police vehicle.

According to the citation, officers found Davenport on the field of Papa John's Stadium, which is fenced in and locked, at about 11:30 a.m. He was placed into custody and began resisting an officer while being placed in the back of a police car.

Davenport fought with the officer and caused an unspecified injury to the officer's arm. While he was in the back seat of the car, he became violent and kicked out the rear window of the police car, the citation said.

He "created a disturbance causing workers in the area to flee and become fearful," the citation alleges. The estimated damage to U of L property was $1,200, police said.

U of L athletics spokesman Rocco Gasparro said that the initial estimate for damages is $21,000 and could be higher as they continue to assess the stadium.

He said that a wrap that surrounds the field at the lower level was torn for about 70 yards. One of the rotating signs that shows sponsored material was also damaged. There is no timeframe on when they might be fixed.

Davenport was charged with one count each first-degree disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, first-degree criminal trespass, third-degree assault of a police officer, and first-degree criminal mischief. He was booked into Metro Corrections at about 1:15 p.m.

He is scheduled to be arraigned in Jefferson District Court on Friday, records show. He is being held in Metro Corrections on a $5,000 cash bond.
