Nacogdoches High School football standout arrested on felony charge

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - NISD Police officers arrested a Nacogdoches High School football standout for obstruction, retaliation, and criminal mischief late Thursday morning.

Jaylon Deandre Lane, 17, was booked into the Nacogdoches County Jail late Friday morning. He was charged with third-degree felony obstruction/retaliation, Class A misdemeanor resisting arrest, and Class B criminal mischief between $50 and $500. He posted at collective bail of $14,000 and has since been released from the jail.

Lane, a 6-foot-2 185 cornerback for the Nacogdoches Dragons, tweeted about the arrest Friday afternoon.

"I'm no longer committed to Oklahoma State due to actions that happened off the field," Lane said in his Tweet. "Some people know the full story & know I was never looking for trouble, but I know some want to see me fail & not succeed, but I hope things work out."

In his Tweet, Lane thanked the coaching staff at Oklahoma State University for giving him a chance.

"I pray things work out the way God wants it to," Lane said in the Tweet. "I also will not let this bring me down - just going to use it as a learning experience & overcome it. Thank you."

NISD Police Chief Doug Ploch could only confirm that Lane was charged and that the alleged offenses occurred on the Nacogdoches High School campus.
