Darius Miles Wiki – Darius Miles Biography

Alabama basketball star Darius Miles wept as he was walked to a police car after being charged with capital murder on Sunday. Miles, 23, was caught on camera being led out of the Tuscaloosa County jail in handcuffs, yelling “I swear I love you more than you can imagine” as he was loaded into a waiting police car.

Tuscaloosa Police Capt. Jack Kennedy said the shooting happened early Sunday on the University Blvd Strip near campus. He said Jamea Harris, 23, of the Birmingham area, was shot and killed. “At this time, it appears the only reason was a minor altercation these individuals had with the victim when they were on the Strip,” Kennedy said at a news conference Sunday night. They had no prior relationship, he said.

 Incident Detail

He said the driver of another vehicle, in which Harris was a passenger, approached campus police near Bryant-Denny Stadium around 1:45 a.m. saying that someone had shot at the vehicle and he responded.

The driver said his response was self-defense and that he may have struck a suspect, who was later treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a local hospital.

According to AL.com, the shooting occurred in the 400 block of Grace Street at University Boulevard, near Bryant-Denny Stadium, where the Crimson Tide football team plays in front of 100,000 fans. Police Chief Kennedy told reporters that after speaking with several witnesses and viewing surveillance video, he identified two suspects who were later located and interviewed, before being charged.

Miles was a reserve on the fourth-ranked Crimson Tide team. Alabama had announced before Saturday’s game against LSU that he was out for the season with an ankle injury.

Prior to that, he had been out of the team on a “personal matter” and coach Nate Oats had said on December 28 that he “wasn’t sure how long he would be out.”

He went on to add: ‘We’re supporting him and trying to help him through it. That’s why he wasn’t on the bench tonight. It’s a personal matter, it’s not an injury and we’re not quite sure how long he’ll be out.” He’s no longer in the team.

“The University of Alabama’s highest priority is the safety and well-being of the campus community,” a university statement said.

We are saddened by the incident that occurred near campus last night and extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the victim.” Neither the driver of the other vehicle nor Harris nor Davis appeared to be affiliated with the university, Kennedy said.
