Free agent safety Earl Thomas put his arm through a window in Texas the day after Christmas. He was treated at a hospital for his injuries and the details surrounding the incident have been largely kept under wraps. Until now.
According to Thomas' wife Nina, who filed for divorce back in November, he spent Christmas night out drinking. He came home the next morning and flew into a rage that ended with him putting his arm through a window. Thomas denies his wife's version of events.
From TMZ Sports:
Nina says Earl then put his fist through one of the house's windows ... causing blood to spill all over the front porch.
Cops were called to the scene in reference to a disturbance, according to police docs obtained by TMZ Sports, and officers say they were able to question Earl a short time later at the hospital over it all.
Officers say Earl told them he admitted to putting his hand through the window ... though they say Earl "reported no crime was committed to cause his injuries." The police docs list the case as "inactive."
But, in the court documents, Nina says Earl's aggression toward her and her family didn't stop there ... she says Earl "threatened to come back to my parents' house, to burn all of my things if I came back to our house in Austin, and to kick my 'ass.'"
Nina says Earl "then sent an intimate video of him and me in a group text to my parents and to our nanny." She added, "To further torment me, Earl sent an intimate video of himself and another woman to my phone."
In the docs, Nina says the whole incident was just one of several times in the past few months where Earl had terrorized her.
It looks like Thomas has some serious stuff going on. NFL players don't just find themselves out of the league seemingly still in their prime for no reason.
They also don't start having a ton of personal issues happen without something serious going on. Whatever it is I hope he gets some help and gets things back on track. The chaos can't be good for anyone in his life.
