Another Syracuse University football player is reportedly facing charges in a robbery case in Colorado.
According to the Daily Camera in Boulder, 20-year-old Jonathan Miller, a sophomore quarterback for S.U., was arrested along with a former athlete from the University of Colorado football team.
According to the paper, Miller and 22-year-old Bryce Givens were arrested on suspicion of punching and robbing a man early Wednesday morning.
The report says the 21-year-old victim was walking home from downtown Boulder when he was approached by two men, when one of them punched him in the face, then took his cash and cell phone. The paper says police suspect Miller was the one who threw the punch. He was arrested on suspicion of assault, robbery and possession of a fake ID.
