EDS: UPDATES with Patterson quote, details.
STORRS, Conn. (AP) -Connecticut freshman basketball player Nate Miles told a newspaper Thursday night that he doesn't know if he will appeal being expelled from school after being arrested for violating a restraining order.
Miles made his comments by telephone to the Connecticut Post.
The Hartford Courant reported that Miles' guardian, Sean Patterson, said the 6-foot-7 forward was expelled following an administrative hearing Thursday.
``In my mind, he was railroaded today,'' said Patterson, a former youth coach who became Miles' legal guardian.
A university spokesman refused comment, citing student confidentiality rules.
According to court documents, the 20-year-old Miles was served with a restraining order on Sept. 22, after a woman claimed he had attempted to force her into having sex. He is accused of violating the order by placing a phone call to the woman less than 20 minutes after receiving it.
here the case was continued to Nov. 25 and he was referred for counseling, which could lead a judge to dismiss the charges.
Miles was academically cleared by the NCAA in June and enrolled in UConn for the second summer session. Miles, who attended five high schools, committed to UConn in November 2006.
