While details of Thomas' arrest are scarce, he was booked into Cleveland County jail at 2:45 a.m. local time under suspicion of assault and battery, public intoxication and interference. He was released from jail eight and a half hours later at 11:15 a.m.
An Oklahoma spokesman told The Oklahoman that the school "aware of [Thomas' arrest] and will monitor the situation and act accordingly."
It's hard to know for sure what will happen to Thomas without the details of what led to his arrest, but the fact this isn't his first run-in with the law will no doubt play into what, if any, punishment he might receive from the Sooners.
Thomas had to spend a night in jail back in December after failing to appear in court for a traffic citation, which on the scale of crimes committed is rather tame, but it's just a series of decisions that Thomas has made that have been problematic. He missed time in two games last season -- the first quarter against Akron and the entire Tulsa game -- for undisclosed disciplinary reasons.
So when you combine the disciplinary suspensions, the failure to show up in court following something as simple as a traffic citation, and now this arrest, well, it's not crazy to think Bob Stoops might want to send a louder message soon.
All of that being said, when he's been on the field, Thomas has been a productive player for the Sooners. He finished second on the team with five interceptions last season, and also broke up four other passes while finishing with 46 tackles.
