Dayton University Basketball Player Sam Miller Facing Assault Charges After Losing Fistfight In Jail

A basketball player from Dayton University faces several charges after an embarrassing incident caught on camera. 20 year old Sam Miller is a junior forward at the school, and he was recently booked  and detained for underage drinking at a local bar. When the bartender realized that Miller’s of-age friend was the one buying drinks for him,  they immediately cut them off.   Miller then got rowdy and started to cause a scene, pushing a female bartender and security before getting arrested.

Usually what happens when campus police find and arrest a drunk underage student, they’re taken to a holding cell at the police station so they could  spend the night and sober up. They’re then subsequently charged with similar charges Miller was charged with; being disorderly conduct by intoxication and underage consumption in his case. What makes this story more interesting is what happened to Miller while in an overnight holding cell. 

Apparently he got into a fist fight with another cellmate. Still dunk and belligerent, Miller lost and got knocked out. The embarrassing ordeal was all caught on camera. The college basketball player has now also been charged with misdemeanor assault. Dayton athletic director Neil Sullivan had this to say regarding the incident,
