Gary Thompson, who has become famous for begging, has showed up in Louisville.

Reporter John Boel from our sister station WAVE in Louisville reports that he spotted Thompson recently in "downtown Louisville. Aggressively panhandling at store entrances like McDonald's and Thorntons or waving down people on Broadway. I recorded him clowning around -- not wheelchair bound -- on the WAVE 3 News station property."

Thompson, 32, was arrested March 16 in Boone County on a Fayette County warrant related to a September 2013 disorderly conduct case in Fayette County. He served three days in the Boone County jail in that case which paid a $264 fine.
