Fresno State track and field athlete Deâ€™Vron Walker has been suspended from the team after being arrested early Saturday morning on suspicion of possession of a stolen weapon and possession of a loaded handgun, according to media reports.
According to a report by The Fresno Bee, Fresno police arrested Walker, 19, shortly after his 1987 Buick Regal was stopped near Barstow Avenue and Fresno Street at approximately 4 a.m. Police officers reportedly said they found a stolen .45 caliber magnum pistol on the carâ€™s floorboard and a .25 caliber pistol in his rear pocket.
The report also said that Walker told police he was going to meet a friend with the guns. The Bee also reported that Fresno County Sheriffâ€™s jail records say Walker had two misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Walker is a native of Los Angeles, is a freshman hurdler out of Dominguez High School in Compton, where he was a two-time CIF State champion in the 110-meter hurdles.
