A man presumed to be Victor Davis, a freshman defensive back, was called out by the Rosenberg Police Department on its official Twitter site (@RosenbergPolice) and official Facebook page in a graphic titled "Rosenberg’s Shoplifters: Most Unwanted."
According to the post, the six people pictured were arrested on shoplifting charges in Rosenberg in the past two weeks. Under Davis’ picture, it specifies that the alleged shoplifting took place at a Kohl’s department store.
Lieutentant William Henry of the Rosenberg Police Department said the incident occurred at 4:50 p.m. on July 12. Davis was charged with theft under $50, which is a Class C misdemeanor. The maximum fine is $500.
Henry said the Davis did not identify himself as a football player. The police department has had a Twitter and Facebook page up for about two years to deter shoplifting. The site is now updated about twice a month.
As of 9:45 p.m. Saturday night, the school hadn’t heard anything about Davis’ arrest, sports information director Alan Cannon told FOX Sports Southwest.
Davis, who went to Terry High School in Rosenberg, redshirted last season. He was a three-star recruit out of high school and chose A&M over Alabama and Oklahoma State, according the A&M football site.
When the Aggies released their depth chart last week at the SEC Media Days, Davis was listed as the No. 2 cornerback behind preseason all-conference pick Deshazor Everett.
It’s been a busy offseason for the Aggies outside of football. Two players expected to start on defense — Isaiah Golden and Darian Claiborne — were booted from the program on June 3. They were charged with aggravated robbery that day. In separate instances, both players had been previously arrested on drug charges.
