Former OU running back De'Mond Parker was allowed to appear before a federal magistrate Tuesday and released on an unsecured bond for his role in a drug conspiracy, though records do not indicate he was arrested.

Parker, 37, appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Frank McCarthy Tuesday, the day federal authorities announced a 51-count indictment against members of the Hoover Crips gang and their associates. Parker, whose first name is spelled Demonn in the indictment, is named in 11 drug-related counts.

U.S. Attorney Danny Williams said the investigation found that the Hoover Crips brought $10 million worth of cocaine — more than 600 kilograms — and marijuana through Tulsa over a three-year period, Williams said. He said the drugs came from cartels in Mexico and made their way through Dallas, Oklahoma City and Tulsa as they moved toward Ohio and the northeastern United States.
