Former Raider testifies in Vegas robbery trial

Former Oakland Raiders wide receiver Javon Walker told a Las

Vegas jury he was very drunk but remembered a man grabbing his

2-carat diamond earrings while he was being robbed in a vehicle

almost two years ago.

Walker was the first witness Wednesday in the kidnapping,

battery and robbery trial of 42-year-old Deshawn Lamont Thomas.

Thomas faces multiple charges and the possibility of life in

prison if convicted.

Prosecutors say Thomas and a 32-year-old co-defendant, Arfat

Abdo Fadel, convinced the intoxicated Walker to get into their

vehicle after he spent a night club-hopping in June 2008.

Walker was later found beaten, robbed and unconscious about a

block off the Las Vegas Strip.

Fadel has pleaded guilty to lesser charges.
