The South Carolina crowd hit the forward with chants of “Lock Him Up.”
Well, the boos and jeers didn't seem to affect him much – and if they did, it was only positive. Miller dropped 41 points in Bama's 78-76 overtime win, including the game-winning shot.
Police have said there is “nothing we could charge [Miller] with,” although Darius Miles has been charged with capital murder. Miles was dismissed from the team after it was revealed he was allegedly involved in the shooting. Miller gave the gun to Miles, who admitted to providing the gun to Michael “Buzz” Davis.
Det. Branden Culpepper said Miller got to the scene and Miles told Davis, “The heat is in the hat,” referencing the gun, per AL.com. He also said, “There’s one in the head,” meaning a bullet was in the firing chamber.

“Can’t control everything everybody does outside of practice. Nobody knew that was going to happen,” head coach Nate Oats said Tuesday. “College kids are out. Brandon hasn’t been in any type of trouble nor is he in any type of trouble in this case. Wrong spot at the wrong time.”
Court records say Davis fired the deadly shots, but Miles “intentionally caused” Jamea Harris’ death by “aiding and abetting by providing a firearm.”
