EKU football player arrested for conspiracy to commit robbery

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, KY (WAVE) - An Eastern Kentucky University football player who was thought to be a victim of an armed robbery has now been charged with conspiracy, according to WLEX.

Lorenzo McWilliams was with two friends when all three were robbed at gunpoint, but police say that McWilliams was in on it.

"It makes sense that he was the inside guy because he knew them clearly better than I did. But yeah, it is kind of shocking to find out though," said one of the victims.

WLEX reports that McWilliams has been suspended from the football team.
