Report: Oklahoma State RB Devon Thomas charged with three felonies


Oklahoma State freshman running back Devon Thomas was charged with three felonies in relation to his arrest for armed robbery that took place last week, according to the Tulsa World.

Thomas has reportedly been formerly charged with shooting with intent to kill, robbery with a firearm and first-degree burglary, all felony offenses in Oklahoma.

The 18-year-old freshman tailback was arrested last week along with three other suspects in his hometown of Broken Arrow, Ok., when police said he robbed a man at gunpoint. Thomas was released on $190,000 bond this past Sunday, and has denied all the allegations.

From the Tulsa World report:

A group of men broke into a home, forced a person there into a bedroom, threatened to shoot that person, and then waited for an acquaintance to arrive so they could rob him, police said.

The victim told police the intruders robbed him at gunpoint, taking his marijuana, money, shoes and clothing and instructing him to leave because they were going to “bust a cap.” After the victim got into his vehicle, one of the robbers fired at least one round that went through the rear windshield and nicked the driver’s head rest, narrowly missing the driver, according to Thomas’ arrest report.

According to court documents, 18-year-olds Eduard Smith and De’Carrio Taylor and two juveniles, all of Broken Arrow, were also arrested and charged in connection with the break-in and robbery.

Rivals.com ranked Thomas — who set the single-season record at Broken Arrow High School with 1,840 rushing yards as a sophomore — as three-star recruit in the class of 2014. Thomas enrolled early at Oklahoma State in January.
