What a moron.

Darius Miles, who was listed as a forward for the University of Alabama men’s basketball team, has been charged with capital murder along with another man in connection to a shooting near campus that killed a 23-year-old woman.

At around 6:45 p.m. on Jan. 15, law enforcement booked Miles into the Tuscaloosa County Jail, according to ESPN.

The university said in a statement that Miles, who was a junior reserve forward from Washington, D.C., has been removed from the team.

Tuscaloosa police Capt. Jack Kennedy said that the shooting happened in the early morning of Jan. 15 near Alabama’s campus. The woman shot and killed was identified as Jamea Harris.

Both Miles, 21, and 20-year-old Michael Lynn Davis of Charles County, Maryland, are facing capital murder charges stemming from the shooting.

In a video that was posted by AL.com, Miles can be heard emotionally telling someone, “I swear, I love you more than you imagine,” as officers led him in handcuffs to a police vehicle.

Darius Miles is a trash ass player, so this is no major loss for Alabama. He’s only played in six games this season, and the last time that he played for Alabama was on Dec. 20 against Jackson State. In that game, he only scored two points, according to ESPN.

And on top of that, he ended up being out for the rest of the season after Alabama announced before their LSU game that Miles had suffered an ankle injury.

Here’s a look at the garbage stat line he had this season (via ESPN):

  • 4.2 PPG
  • 2.3 RPG
  • 0.6 AST
  • 38.0 FG%


Prayers to Jamea Harris, her family and all of her friends. (RELATED: Tom Brady’s ‘New Girlfriend’ Veronika Rajek Smacks Back At Haters Who Call Her Assets Fake, Gets Her Doctor Involved)

Darius, you can rot in prison, and you will. And what a complete idiot to mess up your education at the University of Alabama, as well as your status as a college basketball player. And over what?

Because you got dumped? (That’s what it looks like to me, anyway.)

What a complete disgrace.
