      Former Gamecocks RB Miles arrested

      COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Former South Carolina running back Kenny Miles has been arrested and charged with giving false information to police about a November shooting.

      Miles was at the Richland County jail awaiting a bond hearing Tuesday. The sheriff's department says Miles turned himself in.

      The ex-Gamecock player was discovered with a gunshot wound to his arm on November 4th. At the time, Miles told officials he was shot during an attempted robbery.

      A week later, Sheriff Leon Lott said Miles shot himself and then told authorities a false story. Miles apologized in a November statement for his mistake and said he was not involved in criminal activity.

      Miles gained for 1,341 yards from 2009-12 with South Carolina.
