Texas Longhorns great Earl Thomas has had a rough run of luck lately. Multiple outlets report that an arrest warrant was issued for Thomas last week, in connection with the former Seattle Seahawks and Baltimore Ravens standout’s violation of a protective order.
From ESPN, per the Austin American-Statesman’s reporting: “Court records show the warrant, signed April 27, charges Thomas with a third-degree felony for at least two violations within 12 months of a protective order from May 2021 that stated he could only communicate with the woman through a co-parenting phone app, according to the paper.”
