COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say former South Carolina football player Kenny Miles shot himself in the arm 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 publicly since the shooting.
