Arrest made in slaying of former NFL player

DECATUR, Ga. (AP) - Police in suburban Atlanta say an arrest has been made in the death of former NFL player David McMillan III.

DeKalb County police Sgt. W.L. Wallace says 31-year-old McMillan was shot outside his car early Saturday morning. Wallace says McMillan and a man identified as 19-year-old Antonio Faust got out of Wallace's car and fought briefly before the shooting.

Wallace says Faust surrendered to authorities Tuesday and told investigators he had gotten a ride from McMillan and tried robbing him at gunpoint.

According to the NFL's website, McMillan is from Hinesville, Ga. and played for the Cleveland Browns between 2005 and 2007.

Faust is being held on a murder charge in the DeKalb County jail and was scheduled to appear in court Thursday. It's unclear if he has a lawyer.
