Sheriff: Kenny Miles filed false report

By Alex Scarborough

Former South Carolina running back Kenny Miles is going to have a hard time talking himself out of this one. Miles, who originally told deputies he was shot by an unknown man trying to take his championship rings and money, is reported instead to have shot himself and will be charged with filing a false police report, according to the Associated Press.

Miles has not spoken publicly about the shooting and remains under doctor's care. He will be charged when he recovers.

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott won't speculate on Miles reasons for shooting himself in the upper arm on Nov. 4 or why he lied to officers about it. Lott said that a gun was found in Miles' trunk that matched the bullet fired into his arm.

Miles was South Carolina's leading rusher as a freshman in 2009 with 626 yards. He started six games as a senior in 2012 and finished his career with 1,342 yards rushing.
