A star of the Netflix Original Series, "Last Chance U", Wright was a popular figure in the first two seasons of the show.

Patrick played wide receiver and running back at IN, but dealt with multiple injuries.

Wright left EMCC and enrolled at West Georgia but after being ruled academically ineligible, left the school. Wright, who was arrested Thursday in Harriman, Tenn., is also expected to be transferred to the Blount County Jail, the newspaper reports.

Keshawn Lonnell Hopewell and Itiq Tivone Green already were charged with criminal homicide August 3 in connection with the July 25 death of Caleb Thomas Radford of Maryville, Tennessee. Patrick's brother, Isaiah Wright, was once named the best running back in junior college. That incident occurred just one day after IN awarded Patrick a medical hardship waiver to allow him to remain on scholarship at the school (his eligibility as a collegiate athlete, however, had already been exhausted). He is being held at the Monroe County Correctional Center in Bloomington, Ind. Wright grew up with a combustible temper, said he trusted no one, and often clashed with taskmaster head coach Buddy Stephens on the show.

IN announced July 24 that Patrick was granted a medical hardship that ended his college football career while keeping him on scholarship. Substance abuse, classroom performance, and violence are the main issues responsible for kicking these players out of Division 1 programs or voiding scholarship offers out of high school.
