Ex-Footballer arrested for robbing hotels

Nate Harris confessed to robbing four hotels, one of them twice and he threatened to shoot people

A former University football player in Louisville, Nate Harris was arrested on Sunday morning and charged with three counts of vicious armed robberies carried out on four hotels and dry cleaners.

Reports in the Us state: 'Harris was a heralded recruit as a linebacker running in high school in Miami and accepted a scholarship offer to the University of Miami, but the school withdrew it after he admitted in court in 2002 that he’d served as a lookout in an armed robbery during which he and two others used a gun to rob a man of a necklace, bracelet and ring on a street corner in the Liberty City area of Miami.

'When he was signed at U of L after playing at Dodge City Community College in Kansas, he told The Courier-Journal: “I know people are saying, ‘Will he do it again?’ I know there’s a question mark on me. But I’ve changed my life around. The past is in the past.”

'Harris was arrested at 1:55 a.m. Sunday and charged with a series of robberies that began on Christmas Day when he allegedly entered the Red Roof Inn, 9330 Blairwood Road, presented a note indicating he was armed and demanded cash.'
