Free agent wide receiver Demaryius Thomas is in custody for charges of vehicular assault in Colorado, according to Denver 7. The Texans free agent (and former Bronco) lost control of his vehicle on Feb. 16 and a female passenger in the car suffered serious injuries, police say. Fortunately, those injuries were not life-threatening, but vehicular assault is a felony-level charge in Colorado.
At the time of the crash, investigators did not believe that alcohol or drugs were a factor in the accident. Thomas was said to have suffered minor injuries in the accident, but was fine otherwise.
In his ninth NFL season, Thomas reeled in just 36 catches for 402 yards and three touchdowns for the Broncos. Before the deadline, he was shipped to the Texans, where he had 23 receptions for 275 yards and two scores. In February, the four-time Pro Bowler was cut by Houston, making him a free agent.
