Former Broken Arrow Athlete Appears for Scheduled Hearing
A former Broken Arrow football player accused of robbing an individual at gunpoint appeared Monday for a scheduled court hearing.
Prosecutors charged Devon Thomas with first degree burglary and shooting with intent to kill in June. He's accused of robbing an unidentified individual at gunpoint along with Eduard Smith, Emmanuel Scott and De'Carrio Taylor.
Court records indicate that Thomas was schedule for a preliminary hearing before a Tulsa judge. That was rescheduled to coincide with Smith, Scott and Taylor's hearing on July 28.
Previous reports from KTUL state that officers were told by the victim that the suspects robbed him of marijuana, money, shoes and clothing. The suspects then reportedly told the victim to leave because they were about to "bust a cap."
Today at the Tulsa County courthouse, the victim's grandfather told Channel 8, "I just want justice done. And. the court moves to slow for me, said Don Radebraugh. "I'd like to see it move a little faster and get some of these people put away."
Thomas was scheduled to be a freshman at Oklahoma State in the fall. Coach Mike Gundy addressed this week the recent allegations against Thomas stating the current roster includes everyone on the team, which excludes Thomas.
All four men facing similar charges. They have pleaded not guilty during previous hearings.
