Former Kansas State quarterback Daniel Sams was arrested Saturday in connection to a home invasion where a man was killed in Lake Charles, La., according to a report by the American Press.
The newspaper reports Sams has been charged with accessory after the fact to armed robbery, accessory after the fact to home invasion, accessory after the fact to attempted first-degree murder and accessory after the fact to second-degree murder. His bond was set at $200,000.
The arrest was made following a home invasion on Aug. 12 in Lake Charles, where a former McNeese State defensive back, Aaron Sam, was fatally shot. The American Press reports Sam was part of an armed group that invaded the home.
Sams is the fourth person police have arrested in connection with the incident, according to the American Press.
Sams transferred to McNeese State in 2014 following two seasons at K-State. He rushed for 1,042 yards and 14 touchdowns, while also throwing for 507 yards and four touchdowns for the Wildcats. Sams, a native of Slidell, La., switched schools in order to be closer to his family and gain increased playing time.
He briefly changed positions to receiver with the Wildcats, but he moved back to quarterback with the Cowboys.
At McNeese State, which plays in the Football Championship Subdivision, he threw for 2,290 yards and 20 touchdowns and ran for 1,645 yards and 13 touchdowns. He started all 11 of the Cowboys’ games last season.
