Chiefs receiver De’Anthony Thomas arrested in drug possession case
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver De’Anthony Thomas, a former standout at Crenshaw High, has been arrested on suspicion of possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
The sheriff’s office in southeast Kansas’ Allen County said in a Facebook post that Thomas was booked Saturday. The 26-year-old from Lee’s Summit, Mo., has since been released on bond.
The Kansas City Star reports that a Chiefs spokesperson says the team is aware of the incident but has no comment.
Thomas finished his fifth season with the Chiefs on the injured reserve list after suffering a fracture in October in the same leg he fractured the previous season.
Thomas has 64 career receptions for 503 yards and four touchdowns.
He is set to be a free agent when the market opens in a few months.
