Penn was arrested at his home on December 3. He is charged with one count of theft by unlawful taking more than $10,000.

MSD crews will install a closure on Port Road, near the river, following historic flooding across WAVE Country over the weekend.
Cleaning up can be a long and hard process. Flood waters tend to contain many contaminants and lots of mud.
MSD had to temporarily suspend taking backup requests around midnight. Parrott said to call MSD if water has not receded by mid-morning.
Rising floodwaters all across WAVE Country are causing widespread problems. Others are finding creative ways to document what is projected to be a historic weather event in Louisville.
The American Red Cross has opened eight shelters for those displaced by flooding and severe weather in WAVE Country.
