University of Tulsa wide reciever Damaris Johnson has been booked and released from the Tulsa County Jail.
Jail records show Johnson was booked at 10:30 Thursday morning on felony embezzlement charges. He was released just after noon.
The Tulsa County District Attorney's office has filed felony embezzlement charges against Johnson on Wednesday.
Last week police questioned Johnson after his girlfriend, Chamon Jones, was arrested for allegedly undercharging Johnson for merchandise purchased from the Macy’s at Promenade Mall, where she worked.
They are accused of acting in concert with each other to embezzle $2,610.67 worth of merchandise from the store in between August 20, 2011 and August 25, 2011.
“We reviewed the investigative reports by the Tulsa Police Department and made an objective charging decision based on the evidence presented to our office,” said First Assistant District Attorney Doug Drummond. “Both Mr. Johnson and Ms. Jones have been cooperative with law enforcement during the investigation. As with any other person charged with a crime, they are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law,” Drummond said.
Johnson holds the NCAA career records for all-purpose yards and kick return yards. He was a second team All-American last season.
