Former Indiana running back/wide receiver Camion D. Patrick has had homicide charge against him dropped in connection to the stabbing death of a man in Tennessee.
Patrick was one of four people charged with homicide after the death of 18-year old Caleb Radford, a group that also includes his brother Isaiah Wright, also a former football standout.
Patrick was the only one whose charges were dropped. The other three will head to grand jury.
From The Daily Times:
A Blount County judge has dismissed a homicide charge against a former University Tennessee football recruit in the stabbing death earlier this year of a Maryville man, but did find probable cause to send the same charge against three others in the case to a grand jury.
Blount County General Sessions Judge William R. Brewer Jr. said prosecutors failed to show probable cause 23-year-old Camion D. Patrick was involved in the July 25 stabbing death of 18-year-old Caleb Radford.
Patrick was with the three others after the incident after they left the scene, but denied that he was aware of what happened.
Prosecutors also showed two separate police interviews with Patrick. Each time, he denied knowledge of a robbery or homicide, stating he only figured out what happened right before Alcoa Police showed up in Harriman.
During the first interview, which occurred Aug. 1, Patrick said he was the one who drove the group away from the apartments after the stabbing. In the second interview, which occurred after his arrest, he said Hopewell drove the vehicle. When asked about the inconsistency, Patrick said, “I was just scared.”
“I’m in the middle of something I don’t need to be in the middle of,” Patrick said in the last interview.
Patrick played 10 games for Indiana in 2016. Before his Division I career, he played at East Mississippi Community College, the subject of Netflix series Last Chance U after having eligibility issues in high school. He was once committed to play at Tennessee.
