FAIRBORN, Ohio — A University of Dayton basketball player says he’s remorseful after a judge sentenced him to probation for a jailhouse fight after his arrest for underage drinking.
Sam Miller of Arlington, Virginia, pleaded guilty Tuesday in Ohio’s Greene County to disorderly conduct for the fight in July.
Miller’s attorney says Miller is working hard not to repeat his mistakes.
A police report said Miller could be seen on video confronting and slapping another inmate. The inmate threw punches that knocked Miller down before deputies arrived.
Miller was a member of the University of Dayton basketball team the previous two seasons. Last season, he played in 26 games, averaging 4.5 points and 2.3 rebounds. The school has revoked his athletic scholarship for one year and has suspended him for the current semester.
