Demaryius Thomas arrested, accused of vehicular assault
DENVER (AP) - Former Denver Broncos and Houston Texans receiver Demaryius Thomas has been arrested on allegations including vehicular assault stemming from a crash earlier this month.
Police say Thomas was taken into custody Wednesday after turning himself in. He was also being held on allegations of reckless driving and not having proof of insurance.
Thomas was involved in a crash on Feb. 16, a few days after he was released by the Texans. In a document released Thursday, police said Thomas was driving over 70 mph, more than twice the speed limit, near downtown Denver when his SUV went off the road and flipped end-over-end after hitting a median. Police say the SUV landed on its wheels and one of his two passengers suffered serious injuries.
His agent, Todd France, didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
