BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – A former Indiana University football player was arrested in connection with the murder of a teenager in Tennessee.

The Monroe County Correctional Complex in Bloomington confirms that Camion Patrick, 22, is currently being held in their facility on a hold for Blount County, Knoxville, Tennessee on a homicide charge.
