A former Broken Arrow football star and OSU recruit is in jail.
According to a news release, the Oklahoma Violent Crimes Task Force took Devon Thomas, 20, into custody in the 9500 block of East 65 Street in Tulsa at about 10:30 Thursday night.
He was wanted for an armed robbery on July 23, 2015.
Police said a man told them he and a juvenile went to the 600 block of East Dallas Street to give someone a ride when they were met by Thomas and another juvenile.
They said Thomas had a small handgun and demanded everything they had. When the victims refused, Thomas and the other juvenile assaulted them, police said.
News On 6 spoke to Thomas on August 24 and he said the accusation was bogus and claimed someone was blackmailing him.
Thomas claims he was working at the time of the robbery.
Thomas was also arrested for armed robbery in 2014.
In that case, Broken Arrow police said Thomas and three other men forced their way into a home and robbed a man. Thomas is set to go to trial next year on charges of first-degree burglary and armed robbery.
In addition to the two robberies, Thomas was charged with possession of marijuana after being arrested near Arrowhead Park in February.
