Mean Green duo arrested on theft charges

Antoinne Jimmerson

And somewhere, Ben silently sheds a tear for his alma mater.  Or giggling uncontrollably.  One of the two.

Regardless, two members of the North Texas football team stepped into a little legal hot water Thursday afternoon.  According to the Denton Chronicle, redshirt freshman running back Antoinne Jimmerson and sophomore cornerback Freddie Warner were arrested and slapped with a theft charge.

Essentially, the two are accused of lifting clothes from a local department store.  From the paper:

According to the police report, an employee at a department store in the Golden Triangle Mall in Denton observed two men putting clothing into backpacks on a security video. Both allegedly left the store without paying for the items, which had an estimated value of between $50 and $500.

The school has not decided what if any punitive measures will be taken against the two players.

Jimmerson led the Mean Green with eight total touchdowns — five rushing, three receiving — and his 544 yards were good for second on the team.  Warner’s season ended prematurely after suffering a broken foot in the third game of the year.

    “The school has not decided what if any punitive measures will be taken against the two players.”

    Kicking them off the team and taking away any scholarships is a start.

    When I go to the Mall, I always take my back-pack. Because you never know when you might want to pull out a book and read it.

    Maybe North Texas can’t pay their players as much as other programs.

    no punishment should be taken. its petty theft. they didn’t hurt anyone and a poor college student stealing is no big deal. where I libel the economy is so bad almost every college student steals to be able to eat. the magistrate drops the theft charges if its under 600 bc the cost to prosecute and all that is tons more. so it is just a waste of money for the township

    Them boys sure look civilized in their mean green uniforms. But I think they deserve a brand new pair of florescent orange jumpsuits with a zipper in the rear.

    I would have thought North Texas State was past things like this by now.

    @scalpemseminoles… First, maybe you should have posted “Reaganphone thugs”. He started the Program. (Lifeline Program 1984) AND second, one doesn’t have to look too far in the past to look up some “thugs” (your word, not mine) in FSU football history. Too many to list but, just because you’re such a nice guy, we’ll mention 3. Warrick, Coles, Janikowski. Also, the term “Criminoles” should bring back happy memories. Moral of the story…”Don’t throw stones if you live in a glass house”. Go Irish!!!!!

    @paredskinwarrior

    You’re such a fool! In today’s society, you do the crime, you do the TIME! But one way or another, you take responsibility for your actions.
