Police details on Robert Nkemdiche incident:
At approximately 2318 hours, Zone Two units responded to a person injured call where a male had fallen from a hotel room window. Upon arrival, the victim was conscious and breathing. He was transported to Grady Memorial and was in stable condition. Inside the hotel room, units located a small amount of suspected marijuana. The window was also broken out. It appears that the victim broke the window and then walked approximately 15 feet and climbed over a wall and fell approximately 15 feet. GI Squad and the Narcotics Unit responded to the scene along with the Crime Scene Unit.
According to most mock drafts, Nkemdiche, a 6’4,” 296-pound junior, is a top-10 NFL pick in waiting. This past fall, he recorded 26 tackles and three sacks in nine games. He missed Oct. 17 versus Memphis, a 37-24 loss, and Oct. 24 versus Texas A&M, a 23-3 victory.
On Sept. 19, Nkemdiche tallied a season-high six tackles during the Rebels’ 43-37 victory over Alabama, which faces Michigan State in the Cotton Bowl. The winner of that game will play Clemson or Oklahoma in the College Football Playoff Championship Game.
On Nov. 28, Nkemdiche notched four tackles during Ole Miss’ 38-27 victory over Mississippi State. He had four tackles during a 27-19 win over Auburn and four tackles during a 27-16 win over Vanderbilt.
Ole Miss (9-3, 6-2 SEC) plays Oklahoma State (10-2, 7-2 Big 12) in the Allstate Sugar Bowl.
