Earl Thomas is getting bad press of late. Now he could do some time behind bars. The former NFL star is accused of violating a protective order by sending threatening text messages to a woman regarding the safety of her children.
According to New York Post, a judge in Austin, Texas, issued the arrest warrant for the former Seahawks star on Wednesday, April 27th. As of this writing, police haven’t been able to arrest Thomas.
Thomas is only allowed to contact the alleged victim through a co-parenting phone application, but he hasn’t downloaded it so far. One of the text messages Thomas allegedly sent to the woman mentions purchasing a gun.
“Waiting on hand in foot is why I’ll kick ur ass. 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 [their children] ass.”
The woman reportedly told police that Thomas suffered from numerous concussions during his career and may have CTE. This is yet another story of an NFL player running afoul with the law. Hopefully, everything will turn out okay in this situation as we continue hoping for the best. Follow Thirsty for more from the world of sports and everything else.
