Ex-NFL Star Earl Thomas Arrested After Being Spotted At TX Bar W/ Warrant, #ExNFL #Star #Earl #Thomas #Arrested #Spotted #Bar #Warrant Welcome to O L A S M E D IA TV BLOG, This is what we have for you today:
Earl Thomas was arrested Friday night in Texas after he was spotted at a bar … just days after a judge issued a warrant for the former NFL star after the DB was accused of violating a protective order on multiple occasions, Olasmediatv.com Sports has learned.
We’re told the 33-year-old 7x Pro Bowler was taken into custody around 8:30 PM in Orange County, TX by Orange County PD after the agency received a phone call from a bar patron who spotted Thomas in the establishment.
Officers responded, and Thomas was cuffed and taken to the Orange County Jail … where he currently remains.
Bond has not yet been set, according to online records.
And, because Thomas allegedly contacted the woman multiple times, he could be hit with a third degree felony — a charge that can carry a decade long prison sentence, if convicted.
The bust comes about two weeks after a judge issued a warrant for the former Seahawks star, after Earl allegedly violated a protective order twice in 12 months by threatening a woman and her kids over texts, according to the Austin American-Statesman.
Thomas’ attorney previously told the local Austin paper his client was simply communicating with his estranged wife about their kids, something he says he is permitted to do under the order.
The original protective order was issued in 2021. Earl was ordered to only contact his ex using an approved co-parenting app. But, according to the allegation, not only didn’t the NFL star use the app, he also allegedly sent menacing messages, threatening violence.
The arrest comes during a time when Thomas — the 14th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft — is attempting to get back in the NFL.
Earl, a 5x All-Pro and Super Bowl champion, hasn’t played since the 2019 season where he started 15 games for the Baltimore Ravens.
