Report: Keith Price’s heir apparent won’t face criminal charges

Cyler Miles AP

With the addition of Chris Petersen as a highly-paid head coach and the subtraction of long-time starter Keith Price, one of the biggest question marks facing Washington was just how the new regime would handle the all-important quarterback position.  Exacerbating that uncertainty was the off-field issue Price’s likely successor was facing.

Fortunately for that player and the program, that issue has been resolved in a positive way for the former and could offer clarity at the position for the latter.

In that vein, the Seattle Times is reporting Monday night that Cyler Miles will not face criminal charges in connection to an early-February incident.  In that incident, two UW football players were allegedly involved in an assault Super Bowl Sunday this past February.  The alleged victim told police that he was punched multiple times in the face by the assailants, whom he later identified by looking up their profiles on UW’s official website.

The UW football players were subsequently identified publicly as Miles and wide receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow.

The Times wrote that “[t]he Seattle City Attorney’s Office and the King County Prosecutor’s Office have both been reviewing the case.”  A statement regarding the decision to not file charges against Miles is expected to be released by King County at some point this week.

There’s no word yet on whether Stringfellow, a projected starter at wide receiver, will face any type of charges related to the incident.

With Price completing his collegiate career, Miles, prior to the legal issue, was being looked upon as the successor at the position.  Miles served as Price‘s primary backup in 2013, playing in eight games and starting one.

    UW and Seattle authorities turned a blind eye to any incidents involving athletes years ago. Multiple Rapes, DUIs, reckless driving, assaults, etc occur every year involving a UW football or basketball players.

    Not surprised at all about this. Feel bad for the victim and the boosters who keep paying people off.

    Seattle PD is grotesquely out of control. The federal Department of Justice even sent a special consultant (Merrick Bob) to assist with reform, and they aren’t even hiding their open contempt for him and instead of changing their obscene travesties of justice, they’ve actually buckled down and held fast.

    So dramatic girls! This is no worse then what happens in Tallahassee, or other big football towns. If you want to see how things are supposed to look Morgantown is a good example. DUI’s are prosecuted even the team stars are suspended. We also expelled and incarcerated a thief’ and our only sexual assaulter is behind bars. And were are the hillbillies? Well I rather be a hillbilly then part of a morally inept university.

    I am interested to see what Peterson thinks of fellow rising sophomore Jeff Lindquist, who has a similar skill set to former Peterson QB Kellen Moore, only is much much bigger at 6’3″ and nearly 240 pounds. I wouldn’t count him out if there is a competition.

    $$$$ trump Safety on campus.

    Time for the student body to recognize this and treat the athletes like criminals when approached.

    NCAA should mandate that D-1 football players wear ankle bracelets 24/7 like they do at the zoo to police them while away from their parents and coaches.
