Ex-NFL All Pro Earl Thomas arrested in Texas

May 14, 2022 - 12pm PST

According to Orange County Texas officials former all pro Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas was arrested at a bar Friday night by local police. This arrest comes just days after an arrest warrant was issued for Thomas for violating terms of a protective order on more than a few occasions. Around 8:30pm local orange county police were tipped off by an anonymous bar patron of the presence of the 7 time pro bowler and police soon arrived and made the arrest with no resistance from Thomas. According to online arrest records a bail has not yet been set, as Thomas remains in jail.

Due to the fact that Thomas contacted his ex-wife multiple times could have the 33 year old Thomas facing a third degree felony which can carry a ten year long prison sentence if convicted. Thomas claims he was only contacting his ex-wife to discuss details of their children. According to the guidelines of the protective order he was only to due this through a protected family app through the court, which Thomas did not. Not only did Thomas not use the app, but allegedly told his ex wife that he had obtained two hand guns and he would “kick her ass.” Police also say, Thomas texted his ex-wife saying, “I hope u in the car with him and the kids and yall drive off the road. Ima let my momma and my cousins poison they ass.” All this comes when Earl Thomas is trying to get back on an NFL roster after last playing for the Baltimore Ravens in 2019. If the details of this case are true however, I'm sure this lessens if not completely eliminates his chances of playing in the NFL ever again.
