Former Denver Broncos and Houston Texans receiver Demaryius Thomas was arrested and charged with vehicular assault, reckless driving and driving without insurance Wednesday night in relation to a Feb. 16 single-vehicle crash in Denver.
Thomas and one passenger suffered minor injuries, but another passenger suffered serious injures, when Thomas lost control of his vehicle and rolled it at about 12:20 a.m.
Thomas allegedly was driving his Ford Edge SUV 70 mph in a 30-mph zone when he drove off the road and onto a median, according to a Denver police probable cause statement. The vehicular assault charge is a felony, and the other two charges are misdemeanors.
Thomas is due to hit Free Agency and this will certainly hurt his chances as teams will likely want to wait and see how his legal problems play out.
Free agent WR Demaryius Thomas was arrested for vehicular assault related to a crash a few weeks ago. One of his passengers apparently suffered serious bodily injuries. Police say Thomas was driving 70 in a 30 mph zone.
