Ed Glasscock, the arena board’s general counsel, told WDRB-TV and the Courier-Journal that it was “my understanding” that Petrullo had resigned.  AEG hired Petrullo in 2009 and has run the arena since it opened in 2012.

A new GM will be hired within 30 days, Louisville Arena Authority Chairman Chris Cox told the Courier-Journal.  Cox added that AEG notified the authority about Petrullo’s departure about a week prior to Dec. 4.

Representatives for AEG and the venue did not return requests for comment at press time.
