Brothers Who Starred In 'Last Chance U' Arrested, Charged In Connection To Fatal Stabbing

Brothers Who Starred In 'Last Chance U' Arrested, Charged In Connection To Fatal Stabbing
By Mikey Traynor Updated

Anyone who was a fan of Netflix's outstanding American football documentary Last Chance U will be upset to learn what has become of two of the stars of the second season, as Camion Patrick and Isaiah Wright have been charged in connection with a fatal stabbing in Tennessee.

The two brothers, who played a prominent role in the second season as they discussed in depth their difficult upbringing in foster care, were both offered scholarships to respectable schools on the back of the 2016 season which was filmed for the TV show, but as per ESPN, they have been suspended after the arrests were made on Wednesday.

Camion Patrick and Isaiah Wright are among four men charged in connection with the death of Caleb Radford on July 25. Radford, 18, was found stabbed multiple times on a street in Louisville, Tenn. On Aug. 3, Alcoa (Tenn.) police announced the arrests of two suspects: Keshawn Hopewell, 21, and Itiq Green, 28.

Wright, 20, was arrested Wednesday by Harriman (Tenn.) police. Indiana University police arrested Patrick, 22, on Wednesday in Bloomington, Ind. Wright is being held at the Blount County Justice Center in Maryville, Tenn.

IU police arrested Patrick on Wednesday. He is being held at the Monroe County Correctional Center in Bloomington, Ind. There is no information yet on an extradition hearing or date.

Isaiah Wright's story is particularly disheartening as he showed just how ridiculously talented he was in the early stages of the season before falling out with coach Buddy Stephens (like everyone else) and becoming disillusioned with the sport of football. He signed on with West Georgia University but left the school before the start of the season.

As for Patrick, his football career was blighted by injury and although he was granted full scholarship via a 'medical hardship waiver', meaning he would have been allowed to complete his studies without playing football, he has been suspended following this news.

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.
