Following the news that wide receiver Demaryius Thomas was arrested on Thursday in Colorado, new details have emerged about the incident that led to his arrest. The latest report provides details on the specifics of the "vehicular assault" charges.

According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, one of the passengers in Thomas' car suffered "serious bodily injuries" from a crash a few weeks ago. Per the report, Thomas was clocked driving 70 miles per hour in a 30-mph zone.

Thomas spent most of the 2018 season with the Houston Texans after being traded on October 30. He wound up playing three games for Houston and had seven catches for 99 yards and two touchdowns.

The Texans released Thomas in mid-February.

Denver police later released an image of Thomas' mugshot:

A first-round pick out of Georgia Tech in 2010, Thomas truly burst onto the scene once Peyton Manning arrived in 2012.

In four years with Manning at the helm, Thomas averaged 100 receptions, 1,447 yards, and ten touchdowns per year.

After Manning left following their win over Carolina in Super Bowl L, Thomas' production started to decline. He still averaged over 1,000 yards per season between 2016 and 2017, but by 2018 the Broncos decided he was no longer a fit.
