A second Virginia Tech cornerback, Theodore Miller, has been arrested in connection with a gun-brandishing incident that occurred on Virginia Tech’s campus Thursday. Miller is accused of being the passenger who pointed a pellet gun at a Virginia Tech student from the window of Brandon Flowers’ SUV, and Miller has been charged with brandishing a firearm, a misdemeanor.
The incident occurred Thursday in a campus parking lot and was reported yesterday when Flowers was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon in his vehicle. The charges against both Flowers and Miller are class 1 misdemeanors and carry maximum sentences of a $2,500 fine and 12 months in jail.
Both players face not just criminal charges but possible expulsion from Virginia Tech and dismissal from the football team. Miller and Flowers are both redshirt freshmen and are expected to back up starting cornerbacks Jimmy Williams and Roland Minor. The Hokies’ other scholarship cornerbacks are Chris Ceasar and Brian McPherson. Incoming freshmen this fall will be highly-touted Victor Harris out of Richmond, VA, as well as Dorian Porch from Calhoun, GA, and Stephan Virgil from Rocky Mount, NC.
