Thomas was pulled over by police in Morgantown, W.V., after he was allegedly spotted speeding the wrong direction down a one-way street. When Thomas was asked to provide proof of registration, police discovered two small bags containing what they believed was marijuana, according to the West Virginia MetroNews Network.
Thomas, a sixth-round draft pick last April, was arrested at 3:55 a.m. and charged with misdemeanor possession of less than 15 grams of marijuana. He played in college at West Virginia. Thomas spent all of last season on injured reserve after suffering a back injury in preseason.
The Bears waived wide receiver Sam Hurd following his arrest on federal drug charges in December. Hurd was involved on a different level, though, as federal prosecutors allege he was trying to mastermind a massive distribution network.
