Former Miami Hurricane Glenn Sharpe has been arrested on murder charges in Georgia, according to a local report.

CBS Miami is reporting that Sharpe, 28, is accused of killing Christopher Galloway on Feb. 2 at his home near Stone Mountain, Ga.. Members of the DeKalb County Sheriff's office arrested Sharpe on Thursday at his Lawrenceville home without incident.

Sharpe was named the Brian Piccolo Award winner by the ACC in 2006 after overcoming two serious injuries to make his way back to the field, but is best known for his play in the 2003 BCS National Championship Game. Sharpe was involved in the controversial pass interference call in overtime that gave Ohio State the opportunity to defeat Miami 31-24 in the second overtime.

Controversial PI call? LOL! You mean the call 20 seconds after the play giving Dirty Jim a BS title under a cheating program. Hilarious.

Mothertrucker, Glen Sharpe was holding Chris Gamble when the ball was released.  The call was correct.  This is as opposed to the call when Gamble caught a pass near the sideline, slid out of bounds, but it was called incomplete.  Horrible call, and it would have given OSU a 1st down with about 2:00 left in regulation.  Had the right call been made there, OSU probably would have won 17-14 in regulation,  And you would have won your bet.  You need to place the blame where it really belongs.
