Denver Broncos starting tight end Julius Thomas was arrested last week for outstanding traffic tickets that had turned into warrants. This is just the latest in a summer filled with arrests for the Denver Broncos organization.
“According to sheriff’s office, Thomas was cited on Jan. 25 for failing to yield to an emergency vehicle. He was initially scheduled to appear March 21, and failed to appear so a warrant was issued.”
The Broncos released a statement (via KUSA):
“We were notified of the issue involving Julius Thomas when it occurred on Aug. 28. It was addressed internally and is being resolved.”
Thomas is going to be an integral part of the Broncos offense this season. In the preseason he let the Broncos in catches and receiving yards earning the starting job.
This is a minor offense and more of a face palm moment then anything. Thomas was released on a $500 bond. It still makes you wonder how an NFL player can’t manage to pay a couple hundred dollars for a minor traffic violation. He isn’t the first NFL player this happened to this summer. Former New York Jets running back Joe McKnight was arrested earlier this summer for outstanding traffic tickets as well.
