Cops: Kenny Miles Shot Himself

Former University of South Carolina running back Kenny Miles shot himself in the arm last week, Richland County (S.C.)

Former University of South Carolina running back Kenny Miles shot himself in the arm last week, Richland County (S.C.) Sheriff Leon Lott told reporters.

“His gunshot wound was self-inflicted,” Lott said. “He’s been released from the hospital but he’s still under a doctor’s care. Once he’s physically able, we will serve a warrant on him for filing a false police report and he’ll be arrested and charged with that crime.”

Wow … that’s potentially five years in the slammer if Miles is convicted.

Lott says police found the gun that shot Miles – his own handgun – in the trunk of his car.

“We have recovered his gun from the trunk of his car that our ballistics has proved to be the one that shot him in the arm,” Lott said, adding that Miles was now “cooperating” with law enforcement.

Wow … this story keeps getting crazier, doesn’t it?

Initial reports indicated Miles had been shot during a robbery, however those reports turned out to be false – prompting a flood of theories as to what happened to him.

Miles will be represented by Neal Lourie – brother of S.C. Senator Joel Lourie.

A 23-year-old Lawrenceville, Georgia native, Miles rushed for 1,341 yards and four touchdowns during his career at South Carolina from 2009-12. He also had 416 receiving yards and caught one touchdown pass.

Miles’ biggest game for South Carolina came in 2009 when he ran for 114 yards on just 17 carries against Clemson – leading the Gamecocks to a 34-17 win (the first of four consecutive victories in this rivalry series).

UPDATE: Here’s Miles’ statement …

False report? If he shot himself, doesn’t that constitute a host of other crimes?

Why would he shoot himself? Details are still lacking. Damn.

It doesn’t say it was intentional…could he have done it on accident and tried to cover it up because he didn’t have a permit for the weapon? Or because he was embarrassed? I can’t think of a good reason for someone to shoot himself in the arm on purpose.

1. You don’t have to have a permit to own a gun in SC. 2. He was probably embarrassed, as you have to be a complete f*cking imbecile to shoot yourself. or 3. He’s still not telling the truth.

joshparks November 12, 2013 at 4:22 pm

No, you don’t have to have a permit to own a gun. Yes, you do have to have a permit for concealed carry. And since this didn’t happen at his house, he was obviously carrying it.

I don’t disagree with #3. I wonder too if this is the real story or if he’s covering for someone.

joshparks November 14, 2013 at 10:03 am

I didn’t say you do. But if Kenny was carrying illegally or even thought he might be, it would explain his lying about it.

Shoot Yourself! November 12, 2013 at 5:14 pm

You jerk wad….how do you conceal it AND shoot yourself unless it’s in your pocket and you blow your nuts off. You can have a gun away from your home in many different ways – study up before you go quoting law . Damn!

Reply
joshparks November 14, 2013 at 9:29 am

Of course he COULD have been carrying it legally (in his trunk, etc.). My point was that if he WAS carrying it ILLEGALLY (e.g. on his person concealed without a CWP), it COULD explain why he lied. Try to understand what people are saying before you throw around hard-hitting names like “jerk wad”. Are we in elementary school?

Jay Ellington November 13, 2013 at 8:57 am

You don’t have to have a cwp to carry a weapon in your trunk, which is exactly why it was recovered from there. Somehow he shot himself in the arm, probably called one of his lawyer friends, they told him to place it in the trunk and he avoids an unlawful carry charge to go along with his filing false police report paper that’s getting ready to find him.

As a white male I don’t see it as racism. It is really funny because I alays remember the articles when a white person says they were robbed by a black male and it turned out to be false, blacks always run into the streets and start protesting and yelling racism. Now it has happened in reverse, I really dont see it. I just think Kenny is a DUMBASS and Allan Wilson is one also for employing and allowing him to lay out on the taxpayers dime even after he knows the truth. Thinking back, I dont understand the race card being thrown out all the time.

Very strange why would he not just say it was accidental. Story about a robbery, were he was at the time of the shooting, why not notify the police?

Who is he covering for by saying he shot himself? If this was accidental, just admit it. If this was a suicide attempt, he is a horrible shot.

The two main theories for answering question #1:
A) It was a drug deal and he’s hiding the identity of the buyer or seller who shot him because the police will easily know it was a drug deal gone bad if they have the identity of the shooter.
B) He is covering for one of the kids he is mentoring.

He basically was fooling around with the gun and it went off and he took a round in the arm. He was too embarrassed to admit that, needed medical assistance, panicked and the rest is already out there.

Young, perhaps careless but still doesn’t make him a bad guy. Besides, as long as it doesn’t involve harming anyone else. incest, or anything to do with Jake Knotts, then I say anybody who has a hand in helping the Cocks beat the Taters gets a fucking PASS!

Tombstone is one of my favorite movies. Not only did Val Kilmer put on one of his best acting performances, Kurt Russel is wayyyy better than Kevin Costner.

It was sweet justice when Costner tried to use his clout to kill Tombstone but his Wyatt Earp still lost money while Tombstone made money.

The script for Tombstone produced many memorable lines, while the Earp movie is completely forgettable.
