DECATUR, Tenn. -- A former Tennessee Volunteer football player has been charged with burglary by a Meigs County grand jury.
Cameron Mayo, 29, was charged on March 23 with four burglaries in an individual indictment. He is accused of taking property such as flat-screen televisions, power tools and equipment, collectible coins, weapons, a guitar and an antique telescope from four victims on Nov. 26 and Dec. 2, 2014.
Mayo, a former UT offensive lineman, committed to UT in 2004 while a student at Dalton (Ga.) High School. After multiple knee injuries and surgeries ended Mayo's career as a football player, he worked briefly as a coach for UT. His father, Bill Mayo, was a starter on UT's offensive line in the early 1980s.
Mayo has had previous brushes with the law near the UT campus in Knox County; in Bradley County, and in Whitfield County, Ga., according to media archives.
