The Strange Story of William Dent, Lew Perkins' Blackmailer

5

As the ticketing scandal continues, one former KAI employee is now making a litany of charges against his former employer. Dent claims that Mr. Perkins exchanged free in-home rehabilitation equipment for free seat upgrades at the Fieldhouse, questions the high school eligibility of former and current Kansas basketball players, and claims the school is disregarding university drug policy for athletes. Damning charges. But Mr. Dent's behavior is erratic, to say the least. He was charged with assault by his ex-wife (but wasn't convicted). He demanded Perkins give him the rehabilitation equipment, even though he knew it wasn't his, simply because he wanted to "screw with him." Mr. Dent apparently now sees himself as a martyr, effectively admitting to a blackmail scheme in his attempt to "bring down Lew with him." At this point, it's important to note that Mr. Dent has yet to produce any evidence whatsoever. And if he's really that mad about some exercise equipment that wasn't even his...we could be looking at a nutjob. But it's definitely something to follow as the feds continue their investigation of KAI.
