LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Gil Roberts, Tim Foster, and Lamont Adams are all members of the Texas Tech track team and are currently in the Lubbock County jail. They were arrested last night after leaving Academy Sports on 19th Street.

According to the police report, around 5:00 PM on Wednesday, an off duty Lubbock Police Officer left Academy Sports when he noticed the three men running from the front door. The store's security officer told the police officer that the men stole store property.

Then the student athletes, 20-year-old Gil Roberts of Oklahoma City, 21-year-old Tim Foster of Houston, and 20-year-old Lamont Adams of Round Rock, all got into a car and tried to get away. The Lubbock Police Officer followed the men to the east exit of the parking lot and then activated his emergency lights and siren.

Foster, the driver of the car then pulled into traffic and was hit by a vehicle driven by 57-year-old James Long. Long was taken to UMC with minor injuries.

All three men were arrested and charged with organized crime and robbery. Foster, the driver was also charged with evading arrest with a vehicle.

Roberts you may recognize, he is a member of the 2009 United States World Championships team and finished second last year at the U.S Championships.

Texas Tech tells us they are waiting to get all to facts of this case, and once they do it will be handled internally.
