Saint Michael Thomas who was arrested by the police allegedly threw bricks at the truck
The apparent season from hell continues for Saints receiver Michael Thomas.
The former NFL offensive tackle of the year is at the center of an alleged incident near his home where he was seen being taken away by police in Kenner, Louisiana, witnesses told WDSU 6.
On Friday night, WDSU reported a “heavy police presence” was seen near Thomas’ home, and a man named Luis Sifuentes told the New Orleans outlet that Thomas threw a rock at his truck and pushed him.
Sifuentes, the project manager for the house being built on the same street where Thomas lives, told the outlet that things had been brewing for a few weeks while construction workers parked their cars on the road.
Thomas threw two bricks at the truck Friday night and also pushed the project manager after the recipient realized he was being recorded with a cell phone, Sifuentes said.
WDSU reported that Thomas previously told Sifuentes that his truck would get “brick or bullet” if cars were not moved on the street.
According to the outlet, the Saints are “aware of the incident and are gathering information.”
It is not clear if Thomas faces charges.
This incident comes just two weeks after fellow Saints wide receiver Chris Olave was arrested for speeding in a 35 mph zone.
Kenner Police released body camera footage from the Olave encounter in which the receiver said, “I’m playing for the Saints, man.” Which did not receive a warm response.
Olaf continued to play, even scoring a touchdown last week, finishing with six catches for 46 yards.
Thomas has 38 catches this season for 439 yards this season and just one touchdown.
The multiple first-team All-Pro receiver, who caught an NFL-record 149 passes (for 1,725 yards and nine touchdowns) in 2019, hasn’t regained that form, totaling 94 catches for 1,048 yards and four touchdowns since then, including Missing the entire 2021 season due to injury.
