Reports: Oklahoma cornerback will not face charges following assault, public intoxication arrest
NORMAN, Okla. – An Oklahoma football player who was arrested earlier this year for public intoxication and assault and battery will not face charges, according to reports.
According to the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office, 20-year-old Jordan Thomas was arrested for public intoxication, interference and assault and battery in June.
“Upon their arrival, they located a gentleman in a physical altercation with some employees at a local business, and another subject running from the same altercations,” said Lt. Brent Barbour, with Norman Police.
According to the arrest report, the gentleman running from the bar was Jordan Thomas, while the person in the altercation at the business was 22-year-old Andrew Santacroce.
Officers began chasing Thomas and ended up catching him in the backyard of a nearby home.
“When Jordan was located, he stated he ran because last time he was in contact with the police he was arrested for warrants. When Jordan spoke, he spoke with a thick slurred speech and had the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his person,” the report reads.
SoonerScoop reports that Thomas will not be charged for the incident. Instead, the website claims he will be disciplined “internally,” but will not likely be suspended from any games.
