J.T. Thomas, Chicago Bears Player Arrested for
It all took place in Morgantown, West Virginia. The Chicago Bears linebacker
J. T. Thomas was driving down a one-way street in this small West Virginia
town. Chicago towns own Bear's Linebacker faces a
misdemeanor charge after West Virginia police said that they had caught the football
star not only
driving down a one-way street, but they also found some drugs! Really, the only drug that they found
was marijuana, but that was enough.
The Bears team and coach acknowledged the stars mishap. Head Coach Luvy
Smith stated, "We are aware of the arrest of J.T. Thomas in Morgantown,
W.V." Then stating, "we are currently gathering information
to learn more about the circumstances surrounding the arrest." This
is a little vague but, at the same time still supportive, right?
Morgantown Police Chief Ed Preston was the one heading the case. Mr. J.T.
Thomas was charged on the first Monday of February, 2012 after the officer
noticed an extreme odor of Marijuana coming from Thomas' vehicle.
J.T. Thomas is only of the age of 23. He appeared in magistrate court for
arraignment and was released after fessing up to the charges. He spent his rookie
season on the Bears' injured reserve. Due to his own recognizance
and being on the team's reserve, he took a special road trip to raise
awareness for an unfortunate child that suffers from epilepsy. He also
did a very charitable thing for the cause of epilepsy and for the sweet
child by taking the little boy to the Super Bowl in Indianapolis, Indiana.
