Oklahoma junior cornerback Jordan Thomas was arrested on Thursday by the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office.
Per the official Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office website, Thomas was arrested on charges of public intoxication and assault and battery.
The Fulmer Cup tweeted the full police report and Thomas’ mugshot:
Thomas has been in trouble with the law previously, spending a night in jail in January when an arrest warrant was issued after he didn’t appear in court for traffic violations stemming from a speeding violation the previous summer.
The 20-year-old Thomas emerged as one of Oklahoma’s best defensive backs last season. He appeared in 12 of the Sooners’ 13 games and finished second on the team with five interceptions and tied for second with four passes defensed.
For his efforts on the field, Thomas was named to the All-Big 12 second team by the Associated Press. His role on the defense in 2016 figures to be more prominent after Zack Sanchez entered the NFL draft in April.
The Sooners are not lacking for talent on either side of the ball with quarterback Baker Mayfield and running back Samaje Perine back on offense. Thomas is undeniably a talented player and key member of the defense, but his off-field exploits are quickly becoming a distraction for the program.
