Teacher accused on drug charges is arrested again

CATONSVILLE -- A Walbrook High School teacher arrested last weekend on drug charges was arrested again at his Catonsville home yesterday afternoon on an outstanding warrant stemming from a 1994 sexual assault case in which he failed to appear in court, police said.

A warrant charging Devin Lemuel Boyd, 28, with a fourth-degree sex offense was served at 4 p.m. at his apartment in the 300 block of Sunshine Place, police said. Boyd, who graduated from Walbrook and went on to become Towson University's all-time basketball scoring leader, was free on $50,000 bail after his weekend arrest. Police said they found 60 grams of crack cocaine in his apartment.

Boyd was taken last night to Catonsville District Court, where he was charged and released on $3,500 bail, police said.
