New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas found himself spending Friday night in jail after being arrested for an alleged violent altercation involving a construction worker.

According to law enforcement sources via TMZ, Thomas was taken into custody by the Kenner Police Department in Louisiana and was booked for simple battery and criminal mischief, both of which are misdemeanors. He was released later that evening around 10 PM.

The incident reportedly began when Thomas got into a heated argument with a construction worker who was helping to build a home in the same neighborhood where the NFL player resides. The dispute escalated, with Thomas allegedly making threats due to the worker parking a truck in front of his house.

The situation escalated further when the worker began recording Thomas with his cell phone. Thomas became agitated, picked up a brick, and threw it at the man’s truck, damaging the windshield, according to police. He then confronted the worker, smacked the phone out of his hand, pushed him, and demanded that he stop recording the incident.


The victim reported the incident to the police and filed a report, accusing Thomas of the misdemeanors. Thomas cooperated with the investigation and was apprehended without further incident. Fortunately, no injuries were reported in the altercation.

Given the recent arrest of Michael Thomas, how do you think this incident might impact his career in the NFL, and what steps do you believe the New Orleans Saints or the NFL might take in response to this situation? Leave us a comment.
