Oklahoma State freshman running back Devon Thomas was arrested Wednesday on felony complaints of armed robbery and shooting with intent to kill, reports the Tulsa World.

Thomas being held on a $125,000 bond and has not been charged with any crime. Thomas is a three-star recruit, according to Rivals, and set a school record during his sophomore year at Broken Arrow High School for rushing yards in a season.

More from the Tulsa World:

According to the report, Thomas and three others are accused of robbing a man at gunpoint Tuesday. The victim says the suspects stole his marijuana, money, shoes and clothing and instructed him to leave because they were going to "bust a cap."

As the victim was leaving in his vehicle, one of the robbers fired at least one round that entered the vehicle's rear windshield and nicked the driver's head rest, according to Thomas' arrest report. The report indicates the bullet narrowly missed the driver.

This incident is merely the latest of Oklahoma State's turbulent offseason. Last month, the NCAA docked the program one day of practice per week as a result of having low Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores.
