UNT signee charged in connection to Wal-Mart self-checkout caper

It’s been a few days since we’ve featured a college football scofflaw, so what the hell; let’s reset the “Days Without An Arrest” ticker back to double zeroes. And with the ever-popular Wal-Mart slant, no less.

The Denton Record-Chronicle reported this past week that North Texas wide receiver D’Aundrey Bradley was arrested Tuesday after he and another “accomplice” allegedly lifted nearly $500 in unpaid merchandise from one of the retail giant’s Denton outlets. The bumbling duo thought they could get over on the self-checkout lane at the Wal-Mart; the store’s employees and local police, however, had other ideas.

From the Record-Chronicle:

According to an arrest affidavit, Bradley and Senan Jaber, who was with Bradley at the store at 1515 S. Loop 288, began picking up groceries and placing them in reusable Wal-Mart bags that were in their cart.

Bradley, 18, and Jaber, 19, went through a self-checkout lane, scanned a few of the items from the top of their cart and bagged the merchandise, according to the affidavit. Bradley and Jaber placed the items they paid for on top of items in their cart they did not scan.

Bradley and Jaber left the store without paying for all of the merchandise, which included clothing, before being stopped by Wal-Mart employees and Denton police, according to the arrest affidavit.

And from
D'Aundrey Bradley

Bradley and his bumbler in (alleged) crime were fortunate in that the tally from the (alleged) heist was just $497. An additional three dollars would’ve turned a misdemeanor charge into one of the felony type. As it stands, both were charged with misdemeanor theft of over $50 and under $500.

After signing with UNT earlier this year, Bradley is already on thin-ice with the coaching staff before ever stepping foot on campus as both an official student and Mean Green football player.

“We don’t tolerate this kind of behavior,” head coach Dan McCarney said when asked about the arrest. “If [Bradley] has any more issues, his career will be over before it begins.”
