Tennessee’s Coleman Thomas Arrested For Theft

Sophomore offensive lineman Coleman Thomas was arrested on Wednesday on a felony theft charge stemming from an incident on March 13.

According to the Knoxville News Sentinel, Thomas allegedly stole an Xbox and three games from a room on the University of Tennessee’s campus. Thomas then sold the games to a local Game Stop store, which cost $176 to reimburse the store. In total, the stolen items were valued at $640.

Thomas will appear in court on April 7 where he is to be arraigned.

As a true freshman in 2014, Thomas played in 11 games and started five of those. All five of the starts were at right tackle and his performance as a freshman had the coaching staff high on his ability in 2015.

Interestingly, Thomas took part in Tennessee’s first practice on Tuesday and even spoke with the media. Thomas was also expected to get some reps at center during spring practice.

Tennessee’s spring practice runs through Saturday, April 25.
