Citadel quarterback Miguel Starks has been charged by Charleston police in connection with an armed robbery. Starks and former Bulldog linebacker Reginald Rice have been charged with armed robbery, first-degree burglary, kidnapping and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.
Two College of Charleston students were also arrested by the police but neither one is an athlete.
Citadel coach Kevin Higgins released the following statement:
“Like the rest of The Citadel community we are shocked, angry and saddened by the alleged events involving Miguel Starks,” Higgins said. “Senseless does not begin to describe the situation. Miguel is an only child, loved and provided well for by his parents Michael and Sharon. He has many talents and football is just one of them.
“We will continue to cooperate with the investigation in any way that we are asked.”
