Dimitrique Inman, a former standout basketball player at Harriman High School, was arrested for theft on July 3.
Inman, 20, is scheduled to appear in court on the theft charge next month.
Inman, of 210 Fritts Road, Oliver Springs, led Harriman to the District 3-A regular season and tournament titles in 2011.
He averaged 17.8 points, 9.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game.
He was also named the District 3-A player of the year in 2011.
The theft charge isn’t the first of Inman’s legal troubles.
He was indicted by the Roane County grand jury on June 17 for fraudulent use of a credit or debit card.
According to court records, the victim suffered a loss of $4,203.55.  
Anthony Glen Smith, 45, faces five counts of child rape.
He was indicted by the grand jury last month.
According to the indictment, the alleged crimes occurred between August 2010 and August 2012.
The victim was younger than 13.
Jail and court records listed Smith’s address as 189 Woodlyn Road, Johnson City.
He’s scheduled to appear in Roane County Criminal Court today, Monday.
Bobby Lee Robinette pleaded guilty last week to numerous counts of burglary and felony theft, according to a District Attorney General’s Office press release.
“With a number of prior felony convictions, Mr. Robinette was sentenced in part as a persistent offender under the provisions of the Tennessee
Sentencing Act,” the release said.
“District Attorney General Russell Johnson indicated Robinette’s sentence to be served was for a total of 23 years in the Tennessee Department of Corrections.”
The release said Robinette’s victims included two local churches.
“Fifteen of those years were to be served as a persistent offender and the remaining nine years as a range II felony offender,” the release said.
“That in effect means that he will have to serve a much higher percentage of that sentence before he qualifies for parole eligibility.”
Rockwood police responded to a shots fired call on Tedder Street on June 30.
According to the report, Westley Williams and Brenda Waldo told police that someone knocked on the side of their house at 402 Tedder St., and they heard some shots.
The investigation led police to 409 Tedder, where they spoke to Ronnie Underwood, who “stated he shot into the air to get help for his wife who had fallen in the bedroom,” the report said.
Police cited Underwood for discharging a firearm in the city.
