iPhone charger ‘caper’ nets MTSU WR an arrest

While not even remotely reaching the level of seriousness of one of the arrests the past couple of days, a member of the Middle Tennessee State football program has found himself facing a bit of legal hot water as well.

The Murfreesboro Daily News Journal is reporting that wide receiver Devin Clarke was arrested Friday night following an incident at a local Walmart.  Specifically, Clarke was charged with shoplifting after (allegedly) giving himself a 100-percent discount on a $29.88 iPhone car charger.

Head coach Rick Stockstill was made aware of the incident Monday afternoon and has yet to decide what if any punitive measures the receiver may face.

After transferring to MTSU from the JUCO ranks, Clarke finished the regular season fourth on the Blue Raiders with 18 receptions for 318 yards.

    As quickly as the iphone chargers fail, what he did should be legal. They are garbage. $30.00 for piece of garbage to replace a piece of garbage is highway robbery. My family had 5 charger cords fail in the last 2 months. He should get a medal.

    Right, paying kids is the answer. It’s the school’s fault the kid stole something. Paying the 3rd string player at MTSU what he’s worth would net him a Big Mac.

    It’s really sad that these kids are part of a billion dollar giant and feel so strapped, that they have to steal. America is so effed up.

    I work for a multi trillion dollar organization known as the government and i dont see much more then a few thousand a year. Does that mean I should steal to get a raise since the government doesn’t want to pay me more?
