Ok. St.’s Devon Thomas arrested on felony charges, including shooting with intent to kill

Devon Thomas

A rather serious set of charges has prompted the “Days Without An Arrest” ticker to be pushed back to double zeroes.

While the details are scant thanks to the story largely being shoved behind a paywall, Tulsa World is reporting Friday morning that Oklahoma State running back Devon Thomas was arrested Wednesday and charged with a pair of felonies.  Specifically, Thomas was charged with armed robbery and shooting with intent to kill.

Below is a part of the free portion not behind a paywall:

Thomas, 18, and three others are accused of robbing a victim at gunpoint about 4 p.m. Tuesday in the 100 block of East Madison, Broken Arrow police Sgt. Thomas Cooper said. The victim reported the suspects stole his marijuana, money, shoes and clothing and then instructed him to leave because they were going to “bust a cap.”

OSU has yet to comment on what these charges mean for Thomas’ status on the team, although the severity of the situation leads one to think the player has more important things to worry about than football.

Thomas was a three-star member of the Cowboys’ 2014 recruiting class, rated as the No. 30 running back in the country by Rivals.com.  The Broken Arrow, Okla., product also held offers from, among others, Oklahoma, Clemson and West Virginia.

    Typical behavior. Most likely will blame everyone and everything but himself. I blame the universities for allowing scum like this into schools because they can play football. Scum like this put every single innocent college student at risk for murder and rape. For what a player who most likely would never have seen the field.

    Sounds like a drug deal gone bad. Especially if the victim is telling the police that he stole his marijuana. Really what idiot does that? Does he think that the cops will recover it and give it back to him?

    If Oklahoma State kicks him off the team than he will fit right in at the University of Florida or maybe Urban Meyer has a spot for him at Ohio State.

    I know Winston has has his troubles, but come on, comparing theft of crab legs to attempted murder?

    Noles44;

    I was comparing, It was sarcasm. I was mocking the national media for making Winston look like America’s most wanted over $30 worth of crab legs but not saying 2 words about cases like these.

    Haha it’s even crazier that this happened in broken arrow in broad daylight. It’s the most sleepy, boring town on the planet. Nothing happens there.

    This dude is no Johnny Manziel, that’s for sure.
