London Lacy, a former Kingsburg High quarterback who went on to play college football at UC Davis, has been charged in Las Vegas with attempted murder.
Lacy, 24, allegedly beat an intoxicated man to near unconsciousness Saturday at the Hilton Grand Vacations, according to a Las Vegas Review-Journal story, and is being held without bail at the Clark County Detention Center.
The Review-Journal also reported that video surveillance showed Lacy threw multiple punches at the intoxicated man’s face while on top of him, then kicked his limp body directly on the jaw before leaving. The Las Vegas Police Department tracked Lacy back to his hotel room, where he allegedly admitted to punching and kicking the man.
Lacy was part of a star-studded Kingsburg team that went 13-0 and won the Central Section championship during his final season in 2009. Lacy, however, spent much of his high school career playing behind then-Vikings standout Tyler Bray under coach Dave Steele. Bray, who went on to star at Tennessee, is in his fourth year in the NFL.
Lacy was a reserve during his UC Davis playing career from 2010-14.
