COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say former South Carolina football player Kenny Miles shot himself last week in a parking lot and will be charged with filing a false police report.
Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said Tuesday that he will not speculate why Miles shot himself in the upper arm Nov. 4 and then lied to officers, saying he was robbed.
Lott says Miles remains under a doctor's care and will be charged when he recovers.
The sheriff says a gun found in Miles' trunk matched the bullet fired into his arm. Miles initially told deputies he was shot by a man was trying to take his championship rings and money.
A phone number for Miles could not be found. He has not spoken publically since the shooting.Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
