WR Thomas arrested on vehicular assault charge
DENVER -- Former and wide receiver has been arrested on allegations including vehicular assault stemming from a crash earlier this month.
Police say Thomas was taken into custody Wednesday after turning himself in. He also was being held on allegations of reckless driving and not having proof of insurance.
Thomas was involved in a crash on Feb. 16, a few days after he was released by the Texans. In a document released Thursday, police said Thomas was driving over 70 mph, more than twice the speed limit, near downtown Denver when his SUV went off the road and flipped end-over-end after hitting a median. Police say the SUV landed on its wheels and that one of his two passengers suffered serious injuries.
Thomas and the other passenger also were taken to the hospital after the crash.
Thomas' agent, Todd France, didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
