Last Chance U stars charged with murder

Patrick and Wright, who are brothers from Tennessee, were arrested and both charged with one count of criminal homicide in the stabbing death of 18-year-old Caleb Thomas Radford, the Alcoa Police Department said on Thursday.

WATE in Knoxville, Tenn. reports that Radford was stabbed to death.

Wright, 20, was arrested Wednesday by Harriman (Tenn.) police. Wright received a Division I scholarship from the SEC powerhouse Auburn University, but ended up at a Division III school. Two other men were arrested in connection with the case on August 3 and held on $1 million bail.

Wright was a running back at East Mississippi Community College who was featured in both seasons of the series.

IU police arrested Patrick on Wednesday.

Patrick had hurt his anterior cruciate ligament during 2016 spring practice but returned to play in 10 of Indiana's last 11 games, though he also had a late-season shoulder injury that required surgery.

We'll bring you more as this story develops, and while we expected to do a "Last Chance U Season 2: Where Are They Now?' post in the coming months, we did not expect the words 'criminal homicide" to feature.

Wright was a star running back at the Scooba, Mississippi stepping-stone school, one of the main players profiled by cameras on the sophomore run of the Netflix reality program.

A onetime Tennessee commitment, Patrick was a member of EMCC's 2014 national championship team. He caught six passes for 154 yards and a touchdown last season and also had four carries for 10 yards and a touchdown.

Later in the season, Wright's story took a darker turn, as frustrating injuries led to repeated clashes with his coaches, which led to scholarship offers drying up.
