UPDATE: Tulsa has suspended Johnson indefinitely.

Tulsa
wide receiver Damaris Johnson does just about everything for his football team, as he's currently the NCAA's all-time leader in all-purpose yards (7,796) and kick return yards (3,417). He also seems pretty good at picking up discounts on clothes at department stores.

According to a report in the Tulsa World, Johnson spent part of his Friday morning talking to the Tulsa police after his girlfriend, Chamon Jones, was arrested early Friday morning on a complaint of felony embezzlement. Jones worked at the Macy's department store in Promenade Mall, and apparently was running a scam with Johnson.

According to the police report, Johnson used Jones' debit card to $2,834.84 cents worth of merchandise from the store on two separate occasions in the last week. Johnson was charged a total of $13.25 for the purchases.

Johnson has not been charged.

“He was brought in for questioning, but released pending further investigation,” said Tulsa police department spokesman Leland Ashley.

Tulsa's Damaris Johnson investigated by police

Oops! There goes Tulsa's chance at winning 5 games this season. Now the best they can hope for is 2 wins and no other players being investigated for criminal activity. It's a shame this "student"-athletes waste their opportunities to make something of themselves.
