From staff reports
Former Carver standout Deion Bonner has been named as a suspect by the University of Tennessee Police Depertment in the theft or attempted theft of a cellphone on campus earlier this week.
Bonner had not been arrested and no charges were filed as of Friday night, according to the Chattanooga Free-Press.
Bonner is alleged to have stolen a cellphone valued at less than $500 from a room inside the Health and Physical Education Building on Tennessee's campus Wednesday, according to a police report on the incident.
In April 2011, Bonner was arrested in Athens, Ga., and charged in connection with the theft of iPods and iPhones from inside of a University of Georgia athletic building.
Bonner entered a pre-trial diversion program and underwent counseling and community service.
After serving a five-game suspension to start Carver's 2011 season, Bonner had five interceptions and 53 tackles, including three for a loss.
Bonner signed with Tennessee in February. The defensive back has seen limited playing time in six games for the Vols, who host Troy today at noon.
