Forrest Gump goes to the Univ. of Miami

From the Palm Beach Post

CORAL GABLES — University of Miami football player Willie Cooper was shot in the buttocks this morning in South Miami, according to a police spokeswoman.

Cooper was “up and walking around by the time police arrived,” said South Miami police spokeswoman Susan Rothstein.

Police were at the scene investigating the incident this morning, and Rothstein could provide no further details.

Cooper, a 6-foot-1, 200-pound linebacker from St. Augustine, played 12 games for the Hurricanes last season and saw action primarily on special teams.

UM spokesman Rick Korch said school officials were aware of the situation but had no further comment.

Somehow I don’t see Tom Hanks portraying Mr. Cooper.
