Bargain Shopping: Tulsa Suspends Stud Damaris Johnson

Shocking news out of Tulsa as Eric Bailey of the Tulsa World reports that TU"s All-American return man, and biggest offensive weapon, Damaris Johnson was suspended by the team after his girlfriend was arrested for felony embezzlement.  According to the report, Johnson's girlfriend, Chamon Jones, was arrested Friday morning.  It appears that Jones, an employee at Macy's in Tulsa,  was giving Damaris far more than the friends and family discount.

According to a police report, Johnson used Jones’ debit card on Saturday to pay for $1,596.09 worth of merchandise, but was charged only $12.91 by Jones. The report also states that on Thursday, Johnson paid 34 cents for $1,238.75 worth of merchandise.

Yikes.  The article doesn't specify the duration of the suspension, but from the sound of the police report I'd guess Johnson should be far more worried about potential criminal liability than whether or not he'll be on the field for Saturday's opener against the #1 Oklahoma Sooners in Norman. 

Johnson is the NCAA's career all-purpose yardage leader.  Miner fans will recall he torched UTEP with 6 catches for 253 all-purpose yards and a rushing touchdown in last years 31-28 defeat of the Miners.
