Boise State Dismisses Player After Arrest
Boise State has dismissed linebacker Kameron Dante Miles as he now faces a charge of misdemeanor domestic battery following an incident with a woman at a place near Pennsylvania Street and Amy Avenue.
For Miles, 22, 2017 would've been his senior season.
While initially the prosecutor asked that Miles' bail be set at $5000, the public defender requested for Miles to be released due his status as a "well-known athlete" at Boise State who's lived here the past 3 years. Bail was set at $1000.
Following the announcement of Miles' dismissal, Boise State sports information director Joe Nickell added, "Boise State Athletics will have no further comment at this time."
Unfortunately for Miles, this isn't his first brush with the law. He actually was arrested on January 10th of this year on a misdemeanor charge of possessing drug paraphernalia with intent to use. He pleaded guilty to that charge and was sentenced to one day in jail and fined $247.50 in court costs and fees.
Following his dismissal, Miles reportedly took to Twitter with this statement, "My actions (do) not reflect my character, I made a mistake and I accept full responsibility & the consequences of my actions, Aggie always’’ and “I want to issue an apology to Coach (Kevin) Sumlin & the coaching staff, teammates, my family, WMHS for my misjudgment & the mistake I made.”
