http://www.twincities.com/localnews/...-grove-heightsThe 22-year-old man accused of robbing an Inver Grove Heights bank last week is a former Division 1 college football player who told authorities he was struggling with the realization he did not make pro.
Christopher Lamarque Miller, a former defensive back at Missouri State University, was arrested at his Inver Grove Heights apartment shortly after robbing Bremer Bank on Cahill Avenue, according to a criminal complaint in Dakota County District Court.
Miller told police he had planned on playing in the NFL until he was injured and that he had been "struggling with the fact that he is not a rich and successful football player," the criminal complaint reads.
He also apologized to police, calling the robbery a "big mistake," and told them the money was at his apartment. The cash was recovered.
Miller played football for Missouri State University in 2007 before leaving the team and school midway through the 2008 season, an athletic department spokesman said.
According to his college profile, he was studying psychology. He should have stuck it out.
He also fancies himself a fashion designer on LinkedIn. Guess that didn't work out either.
I'm still struggling with the fact that I didn't marry a rich rock idol.
