Theballerlife.com has learned that New York Jets linebacker Bryan Thomas was recently charged with assaulting his wife Danielle Thomas, possessing painkillers and marijuana.
Thomas, 33, was charged Oct. 31 in Randolph with aggravated assault upon his wife at their home. The linebacker — described as 6 feet, 4 inches and 265 pounds on the NFL roster — allegedly pushed his wife with a kitchen chair, punched her in the stomach, and grabbed her by the neck, causing pain and marks on her body, according to criminal complaints.
Thomas, who posted $2,500 bail after his arrest, also was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon (the kitchen chair), possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana, and possession of 20 tablets of suspected hydrocodone.
Complaints state that Thomas had a Havannah hookah, a pack of ZigZag rolling papers, a box of Phillies Blunt Cigars, and six small glass vials, all allegedly used to smoke or store marijuana. The suspected hydrocodone was found in an orange Walgreens prescription bottle with no label, the complaints said.
Thomas has applied for admission into Morris County’s Pre-Trial Intervention program for first-time offenders. If he successfully completes a period of probation and other conditions, the charges would be dismissed and he would not have a criminal record.
Thomas is scheduled to next appear in Superior Court, Morristown, on Feb. 5th.
