Ex-SC RB Miles acknowledges suicide attempt

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Former South Carolina tailback Kenny Miles acknowledged he tried to kill himself when he was shot in the arm in November, saying he was struggling with depression.

Miles released a statement this week through his attorney, Neal Lourie. Miles has been charged with giving authorities a false story when he was discovered with a gunshot wound to his arm.

Miles said this week he was diagnosed with clinical depression and anxiety and encouraged those showing signs to seek help. He thanked supporters and asked for privacy as he continued healing physically and mentally.

Miles gained for 1,341 yards from 2009-12 with South Carolina.
