Jordan Thomas facing charges of assault and battery, public intoxication

Oklahoma cornerback Jordan Thomas was arrested and could face charges of interference, public intoxication and assault and battery on Thursday morning, according to the Cleveland County Sheriff's office in Oklahoma.

According to Cleveland County Sheriff's office, he was released from custody at 11:13 a.m. CT.

A junior, Thomas was a key member of Oklahoma's defense a year ago, starting 11 games and finishing with 46 tackles and five interceptions to earn All-Big 12 second-team honors. As the lone returning starting cornerback, he is expected to be a big part of Oklahoma's secondary in 2016.

The recent arrest isn't Thomas' first off-the-field incident. He was arrested in December for failure to appear in court for a traffic violation. Thomas also has been suspended twice for undisclosed team violations during his time with the program.

Oklahoma did not immediately respond to a request for comment from coach Bob Stoops.
